Firestone Vinyards Santa Yvez Valley Chardonnay 2013, California 

My Rating 85 Points.   

Price $13. 


Light straw in color with a golden hue.

Fruity nose of pears, pineapples, vanilla, oak, melons, citrus, tropical fruits, yellow apples and light gooseberry.

Full bodied and bold, yet refreshing when chilled, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with vanilla, oak, grapefruits, citrus, apples, pears, cream, toast, almonds, melons and tropical fruits.

A Medium watery finish.

This is an above-average, yet simple, chardonnay from California. Big, with lots of alcohol, so beware…
Nicely balanced with ample secondary flavors of wood and vanilla. Nice and refreshing to drink by itself but needs to be very chilled.

14.2% alcohol by volume.
