The burgeoning spring, beginning the 20th of this month, will see the seeds and shoots of new growth as the cycle of life begins again. Is there a better time, we thought, to feature Read More...
a fresh, clean, unoaked Chardonnay than now? Well, to be honest, we didn't think that at all. We happened to taste this wine in January and were collectively blown away at how delicious, varietally correct and affordably priced this Jackhammer was and is. We've featured their delicious Pinot Noirs many times before (for much the same reason as this Chard-- delicious, varietally correct, affordably priced) so we were pleasantly not surprised to experience how good this wine is.

Really? You may ask; ever-ubiquitous Chardonnay, the chameleon that can taste like a panoply of flavors, textures and techniques (depending on vintner practice and manipulation)? Yes, we respond, while Chardonnay can run the gamut from oaky butterball to rock-licking minerality, and every great (and not-so-great) degree in between-- when a Chardonnay hits the target, rings the bell, hits it out of the yard, it is a thing of beauty; and that's what this Chardonnay is.

The secret (or not-so-secret) is in the vineyard and the harvest. Here's what the Jackhammer team says: "The grapes for this wine were harvested through all of October from two vineyards, Spanish Springs in San Luis Obispo, and Kirsty's Vineyard in Monterey. These cool-climate growing regions provide high natural acidity. The wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks and did not go through malolactic fermentation. 2013 was a very dry year with a lower rain fall winter preceeding the growing season. The vintage was warmer than average with a little heat in late August... but other than that it was perfect weather during harvest: consistent temperatures of around 78 degrees, clear skies for the entire harvests. One of the best harvests in quite a while."

Our notes: ...on the nose, notes of pear, lemon grass, lanolin and river water. Mixed tropical fruits. The palate starts lush with nice viscosity but an excellent layer of acidity keeps it light and lean. Flavors: more tropical fruits, lemon zest, white peach with a touch of cream soda, minerality in the finish. Lovely wine, killer value. Enjoy solo (we did!) or with white fish, grilled shrimp, sushi, tilapia tacos.

This region is wonderful for powerful reds, but Monterey County holds a better place for Chardonnays. Rich & creamy with great citrus flavors, this is the perfect Chardonnay for afternoons and light to moderate food!

Each JCB wine is known by a number. And each number has deep significance for Jean-Charles Boisset, the collection’s creator and namesake. No. 81 refers to the excitement Jean-Read More...
Charles felt in 1981 when he came to California from Burgundy for the first time. For that trip, he was inspired to make an elegant chardonnay evocative of the white Burgundies he had grown up with yet undeniably of California provenance.

For Jean-Charles Boisset, the lemony/tropical aromas of this chardonnay are especially ALLURING, calling the taster back over and over again. The plush, creme-brulee-like texture is rich, yet the wine has an elegance that makes it quite EPHEMERAL. Finally, the long, ripe finish is delicious. It makes you insanely INSATIABLE!.

A perpetual favorite here at the store, Justin Winery is synonymous with quality. From their flagship bottling of Isosceles to their everyday wines, they are all, across-the-board, astounding! Read More...
The latest release of their Chardonnay is beautiful. French oak was used to give the wine weight and richness, yet it did not undergo malolactic fermentation and partial tank fermentation was utilized to retain the grape's acidity.

Aromas of green apple, tropical fruit and ripe stone fruit combine with a hint of orange blossom on the nose of this wine. The entry is bright and crisp with good acid and flavors of peach, lemon and a hint of minerality. The wine finishes with multiple layers of honey, cream and a touch of caramel from the lees stirred French oak.

the barrels were stirred weekly. No secondary, or malolactic fermentation was carried out, leading to the crisp, citrus character of this wine. The wine was bottled after approximately seven months of aging in the cellar.

The finished wine shows citrus, ripe pear and green apple in the nose. Hints of lush white peach are noticed as the wine opens up. The sur-lie aging has added richness and complexity, and plenty of oak character returns on the finish. Like all of Keenan’s wines, this Chardonnay is a food worthy wine whose crisp acidity and medium body will accompany a wide variety of food fare.

Santa Barbara, and Mendocino Counties. Avant takes its name from the French word for before and reflects the vibrant expression of the fruit before oak has the chance to impart much flavor. This refreshing Chardonnay bursts with intriguing layers of fresh pineapple, bright green apple, crisp Meyer lemon, juicy pear and wildflowers. The wine's refreshing acidity and sleek mineral notes are balanced by a rounded mid-palate with a long, pure fruit finish.

included in this wine, which no doubt explains the big, tropical fruit-scented nose, fine acidity, and medium to full-bodied flavors. Despite the fact that this cuvee sees 100% barrel fermentation with full malolactic, there is little evidence of oak. The wine is aged eight months, on its lees, in one-third French oak. It is an amazing Chardonnay for the price.

Kistler produces one of the more coveted Chardonnays out of California! Their single-vineyard wines receive lofty scores from the critics, and easily command prices in excess of $100.Read More...
00 to $200.00 per bottle. However, we secured a small allocation of their Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay, which offers many the flavors of the single-vineyard Chardonnays, but at a more affordable price!

The Kistler plantings on Sonoma Mountain, situated on a hillside bench perfectly suited for growing world class Chardonnay, are interlaced with the rare combination of red volcanic and fine grained chalky soils. These are east facing terraced vineyards, shadowed from the afternoon sun by giant redwoods. This is a remarkable marriage of site and orientation to the cooler trendings of the valley below. They are some of the oldest Chardonnay vineyards in Sonoma County.

This wine is tremendously complex, straw/gold colored wine that really does run the entire gamut. It starts off with Burgundian with intense aromas of green apple and sea spray, flavors of flint and citrus, and is structured by vibrant acidity. As the wine opens, it becomes more and more Californian, with notes of roasted almonds, pineapple, lemon bar, marshmallow, toasted oak, and butter notes. Big, lavish, full-bodied, and mouth-watering, there is a reason why Kistler Chardonnays are requested every day of the year...and this is a GREAT representation of their house style.

only costs $15.99!

There are delicious flavors of pear, white peach and butterscotch intermingling on the palette and a long lingering finish that goes farther than any wine at this price should. This wine is more than just value, as it shows true depth and personality. Winemaker Melissa Stackhouse takes great care in ensuring that this wine is balanced and a marvelous stand out in the great sea of value-priced Chardonnay.

Just a quick whiff reveals great purity, with huge tropical and floral notes. In light of our current economic climate, La Crema Winery hits the mark on quality and availability, all the while delivering it prudently. Oh! And we should mention that Robert Parker said, This Chardonnay / Pinot Noir specialist should receive rave notices from bargain hunters looking for a top-flight Chardonnay that is complex, rich, and widely available. So we are by no means the only people who understand this winery's significance.

Lafond is located in the Santa Rita Hills region of Santa Barbara County, an ideal environment for growing intensely flavored, full-bodied Chardonnay. This AVA is distinguished Read More...
by a very cool and long growing season created by a convergence of unusual geography in this part of California. It is not uncommon to see high scores given to Chardonnays that are more modest in pricepoint from this region. A blend of fruit from two neighboring vineyards to Lafond, the 2010 Chardonnay "SRH" is Winemaker Bruce McGuire's selection to showcase the ripe, concentrated Chardonnay for which the Santa Rita Hills AVA is known.

Lafond's new blocks of Chardonnay are now in production, and have four additional clones along with their original Wente clone, which was first planted over 25 years ago. The new clones add to the complexity of the wineand introduce subtle flavors which add to its enjoyment and underline the remarkable qualities of the Santa Rita Hills 'terroir'.
The 2012 La Fond is a beautiful pale yellow color. Aromas of lemon meringue, melon tones, and honeysuckle. A full-bodied chard that is concentrated and packs a fantastic fresh finish.

ridge of the Sonoma Mountain range overlooking Los Carneros. The Petaluma Gap is characterized as a very cool, windy, fog influenced area. The Lorenzo Vineyard is located in the Russian River Valley and is 100% Wente clone. The soil has a high percentage of clay, which helps give this wine an element of minerality in the flavor profile.

The 2010 Damaris Reserve displays light gold hues with aromas of white pear, lime zest, crystallized ginger, chalk, and hints of vanilla, honey, and cookie dough. This medium bodied Chardonnay is dry and balanced with moderate acidity that increases on the palate. Complex flavors of poached white pear, white nectarine, lime zest, crystallized ginger, and vanilla linger on the finish with a pleasant minerality.
