Pride Mountain Vineyards Vintner Select Cuvée Chardonnay 2006
|Brand||Pride Mountain Vineyards|
Wine EnthusiastThis is quite a hefty young Chard. It takes the basic elements of ripe, potent fruit, oak, and Burgundian-inspired technique and elevates it all, a Chard on steroids. The peach, tropical fruit, pear, candied ginger and charry oak flavors have an acidic scour. Drink now and for the next 5 years.
Wine AdvocateTwo white wines have just been released, including the 2006 Chardonnay Vintner's Select. It offers up copious aromas of lemon blossoms, nectarines, pear, crushed rock, and white flowers. Well-made with zesty acidity, it possesses that minerality that emerges from these high elevation vineyards. Consume it over the next 2-3 years.
Wine SpectatorHints of ripe pear, juniper berry, herb and light oak give this a measure of complexity, but needs time. Drink now through 2010. 460 cases made.
