Great Value

Acid-influenced intensity of flavor sets this Chardonnay apart from its peers. The pronounced bright lemon, orange and tangy apricot flavors make up the wine’s shining core. If you look for them you’ll find buttered biscuit and clotted cream flavors along with oyster shell/salty sea air. Ultimately, this is a Chardonnay for lovers of the crisper style. What makes it special is its sneaky richness. Outstanding buy at $35.

More Information

Evening Land Vineyards is owned by Sashi Moorman and Raj Parr, two long-time and influential California wine veterans (Moorman as winemaker in Santa Barbara, Parr as Sommelier turned vintner). They are the stewards of “Seven Springs Vineyard,” meaning they farm, manage and source all the grapes from there. (The Evening Land and Seven Springs stories are more complex than their best Pinot Noir. This Prince of Pinot story explains it as well as it can be.) As a consumer, the most important factoid is that they make world-class, delicious Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that pay respect to the special vineyard from which they come.
