Bonterra Chardonnay 2010

Bonterra Mendocino Chardonnay 2010Bonterra, Mendocino County, Chardonnay 2010 The nose features fresh stones fruits and a splash of new oak.  In the mouth the fruit expression is quite lively, citrus, apricots, peaches and the freshness of summer sunshine.

Besides the Chardonnay, the grapes behind this wine include 4% Muscat and 4% Viognier, 100% organically grown. The residual sugar is just 3.9 grams per liter which accentuates the fruit without tasting overtly sweet. Winemaker Robert Blue. Produced and bottled under a screwcap closure in Hopland 13.5% available directly from the winery for $11.99, a media sample. Bonterra
