Top 10 wines in the US press27th February, 2013 by Andy Young
S. Irene Virbila recommends a “beauty” of a Chardonnay that is “elegant and food-friendly”, while Paul Gregutt picks out a “honey-drenched ice wine”.
Writing in the LA Times Virbila said of her pick: “Score one for California Chardonnay.” She added that the wine “combines the juice from five vineyard sites in the Santa Rita Hills, each one contributing a different expression of Chardonnay to the blend. The result is an elegant, food-friendly Chardonnay with aromas of melon and orange blossom”.
Gregutt’s choice for his readers in the Seattle Times was for one those who are “hankering for something sweetly decadent”.
