Robert Young Vineyard Chardonnay

Robert Young Vineyard Reserve Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $25.00 per bottle

Description: Meyer lemons, ripe peaches and a hint of gardenia begin the aroma adventure on the nose of this delicate wine. The signature viscosity is once again found in the mouth on this vintage of Reserve Robert Young Vineyard Chardonnay and coats the palate with layers of yellow stone fruits, smoky vanilla notes and a subtle hint of almond. Perfect acidity and structure make this a well-balanced wine that lingers on the mouth long after it has been tasted.

Varietal Definition
Chardonnay is by far the most widely planted grape crop in California and dominates California’s cooler, coastal, quality wine regions. The natural varietal ‘taste and smell’ of Chardonnay is surprisingly unfamiliar to many wine drinkers, as its true character is often guised with dominating winemaking signatures. Chardonnay’s rather subdued primary fruit characteristics lean toward the crisp fruitiness of apples, pears and lemon, but the variety’s full body is capable of supporting a host of complementary characteristics, such as oak, butter and vanilla. Regardless of what is the appropriate style for Chardonnay, the varietal continues to dominate vineyard plantings in every corner of the world. Close attention to clonal selection has made this broad geographic and climactic range of Chardonnay viable in thoughtful viticultural hands.
