Rusack Santa Barbara County Chardonnay 2014
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara|
Wine EnthusiastPink-grapefruit rind, sea salt, Meyer lemon and nectarine aromas show on the nose of this wine made by Santa Barbara-raised Steve Gerbac. The medium-bodied palate offers light touches of pan-seared apples, white peaches and tangerine peel with a deliciously salty edge to it all.
Wine AdvocateRusack's 2014 Chardonnay Santa Barbara County is a charming, fruit-forward and classic effort that has lots of apple fruit and spice in a plump, medium-bodied, rounded and fruit-forward style that's hard to resist. Drink it over the coming 2-3 years.
Wine SpectatorFresh and lively, with an intense mix of zesty, citrus-laced green apple and citrus skin notes giving a pithy texture, clipped on the finish. Drink now. 1,961 cases made.
