"Presents a laser beam of fresh, vibrant green apple, melon, baking spice and gravelly earth flavors. Oak is a nonfactor. Purists will warm to the style. Drink now.–JL " (WS)

"The 2014 Chardonnay is bright, focused and finely-cut. Lemon peel, white flowers, mint and white pepper give the 2014 much of its lifted, mid-weight personality. As always, the Montelena Chardonnay is done in a brisk, dry style, with blocked malolactic fermentation." (VM)

Winery Notes:
Ripe peach, pear and cloves dominate the nose amidst a flurry of floral and honeysuckle notes.
