2010 Carl Roy - Chardonnay
Carl Roy Chardonnay is a vibrant, cool-climate wine, loaded with anjou pear and citrus fruit, with just a touch of new wood. The concentrated fruit is followed by a firm, mineral acidity that leaves a long finish. It is glistening pale-gold to the edge. The wine is rich and juicy on the attack with plenty of density, but the 2010 is far more about the electric and the mineral than the power. Beautifully defined, almost chiseled, with super balance and lovely persistence. This is an elegant Chardonnay, terrific for any occasion, particularly good with richer seafood and roasted poultry. Drink now or age for 3 years in a cool cellar.
