"Pretty & Expressive With Lovely Textural Depth... Excellent Wine That Merits Serious Attention!" By Robert Parker
Directly imported by Wine Tycoon HK, Donelan Family Wines, one of Northern California's premier boutique wine producers, has made a big splash in Sonoma especially with a series of critically acclaimed, single-vineyarded Syrahs crafted in old-school fashion. Now, it's time to recalibrate your expectations of Californian Chardonnay that 2015 Donelan "Nancie" Chardonnay can bring Premier Cru Puligny Montrachet to mind with an impression essence of minerality & a terrific tension between its ripe fruit & its palette-wetting acidity. Being aged in French barrels for 11 months, "it opens with a nose of ripe nectarines, pineapples & guava with underlying notes of butterscotch, cedar & brioche. The medium-bodied palate is elegantly fruited with plenty of vivacity, delivering intense tropical & stone fruit flavors plus a satiny texture & long finish." By Wine Advocate. Annual production 1,519 cases.
