2013 Signature Chardonnay


Jim Ball Vineyards

2013 Signature


"Our Mendocino Ridge Chardonnay is where East meets West, where the bright and pretty can reside with the deep and visceral.  The initial nose creates a delicious tension between hints of rose petals and musky, sensuous pheromones. Yellow stone fruit matches well with the clean smell of wet river stones.  This duality continues on the palate with minerality framing yellow fruit, great acidity building on the mid-palate leading to a lingering aftertaste of once again floral notes in harmony with the feral.  The definition of mouthfeel and complexity, illustrating why Manchester Ridge is re-defining and shifting the paradigm of what is possible in California Chardonnay.”
