Varner-Chardonnay-"Spring Ridge Vineyard-Home Block" Santa Cruz Mountains-2013

"Spring Ridge Vineyard-Home Block" Santa Cruz Mountains


Brothers VARNER farm and make Estate Chardonnay (and Pinot Noir) from their vineyard minutes north of Stanford/Palo Alto. “Burgundian” through & through: mineral nerve, preserved lemon peel, quince, marzipan, dried pear slices, marmalade, caramel custard, brioche. Still young, the texture is there and the nose, flavor and finish need coaxing. Decant one hour and enjoy.
"A classic Chardonnay, the 2013 Chardonnay Home Block Spring Ridge Vineyard offers lots of ripe Chardonnay apple and stone fruits, white flowers, brioche and hints of minerality in its medium to full-bodied, layered and balanced profile. Slightly richer through the mid-palate than the Amphitheater, it's still clean, focused and crisp, with terrific length. It too needs a year of cellaring and will keep through 2023." Jeb Dunnuck for The Wine Advocate, October 2015
