Top 10 wines in the US press

Heitz Cellar, Napa Valley, Chardonnay 2011

Heitz Cellar Chardonnay 2011This wine is recommended by Rebecca Murphy, in the Dallas Morning News, who described Joe Heitz as “a pioneer of modern Napa Valley.”

She added: “Though Heitz is best known for its Cabernets, the winery also makes an exquisite Chardonnay. It’s not the rich, buttery, oaky style you might expect from a California Chardonnay. Instead, you will find a graceful, harmonious fusion of citrus, apple and pear fruit with chalky mineral notes. In the mouth, these refined flavours are creamy and supple, and heightened by racy acidity. Enjoy it with seared scallops or a roast chicken.”
