Lauren Estate produces a wine of fabulous concentration layered with extract, complexity, aromatics and a great mouth feel not found in many wines. This wine really gets back to the site which makes this Chardonnay so great. Lauren Estate has four of the most distinct Chardonnay clones and each are harvested and kept separate to the barrel and blended only before final racking to bottle.

Wine AdvocateA superb effort, the 2004 Chardonnay Lauren Vineyard exhibits huge notes of lemon oil, nectarines, quince, citrus blossoms, and crushed rocks/minerals. This big, rich, full-bodied Chardonnay boasts stunning acidity, a superb texture, and an amazing finish. This Chardonnay tends to be aged in 100% new oak (which is totally concealed) and is bottled without fining or filtration. Consequently, if it has just been shipped or moved, it can reveal a slight haze.

Wine SpectatorA stunning wine, with amazing richness, depth, purity of flavor and concentration, with layers of ripe pear, crème brûlée, date, apricot and hazelnut flavors that glide along on a silky smooth texture, with a finish that keeps revealing extra flavor nuances. Drink now through 2011.
