Gainey Vineyard

Our new vintage of 'White Label' Chardonnay reflects the high quality of our 2009 fruit. Its fresh, lovely aromas are keyed on ripe yellow apple, lemon curd and honeyed white peach scents accompanied by hints of light buttercream, mineral, autolyzed yeast and spicy/toasty oak. On the medium-full palate, the wine offers rich, creamy, golden citrus, spiced apple and ripe peach flavors, with notes of pineapple, lime, mineral and toasted vanilla gracing the long, refreshing, lip-smacking finish. Beautifully structured, with succulent varietal flavors enlivened by perfectly balanced acidity, this delicious Chardonnay will make wonderful drinking over the next 1-2 years with a wide range of seafood, poultry and vegetarian entrees.

Wine Enthusiast

Gainey's basic Santa Rita Chardonnay is a fine wine, dry, crisp and minerally, and this is a good price for it. It shows a nice mélange of oak influences with peach, pear and pineapple fruit flavors.

Score: 88. —Steve Heimoff, July 01, 2011.
