2014 was another beautiful vintage at White Rock, and this Chardonnay is showing beautifully and lively. The nose is bright and fresh with notes of zesty lemon and stone fruits. Green apple fragrances yield to a full mouth of quince, ripe melon, and finishes with hints of Meyer lemon. Our Chardonnay develops its lush mouth feel from 11 months of sur-lies aging in French oak barrels. The acid is bright and well integrated, promising excellent age-ability.

Wine EnthusiastBright, forceful and slightly reductive, this white is aged less than a year in neutral French oak, allowing the fruit to speak and offer richness on the midpalate. Gingerbread and lemongrass flavors accent its essential core of green apple fruit.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay from White Rock Vineyards offers attractive minerality, hints of pineapple and orange rind, medium body, a discreet use of oak, and excellent fruit and purity. It could easily pass for a premier cru Chablis in a blind tasting. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.
