Toasty, ripe citrus and orchard fruits and light brown caramel nose transitions to lemon pudding, roast peaches, apple pie spice and sweet butter in the mouth. This is rich and round with a delicious lemon/caramel custard quality to it. White chocolate and apple butter come through on the 30 second finish. Rich and sweeter descriptions here I realize…it’s impressive how this wine pulls off such ripe flavors and richness while keeping its “dryness” intact. In my experience, this happens with Chardonnays running $45 and up!
Edaphos is one of the wines made by Ernest Vineyards. They are quite new – 2014 is their first vintage. This Chardonnay was part of my first tasting of the Ernest Vineyard wines. I like them a lot. Here are all the wines I reviewed from Ernest Vineyards.
By Edward Lee: Vibrant lemon yellow, delightful fragrance of honey suckle, orange blossom, mixed with golden apple and pear. Very captivating wine with silky texture, refreshing acidity, and a lasting impression.
