Petito Suenos Chardonnay 2010
Save $20.00 (50%)
Very clear straw color. Apples, and dates, flinty character is present but held well in hand. Mouth-.filling, fresh fruit is well balanced by tart, mouth-.watering acidity that builds a sturdy structure. Alcohol (14.3% claimed in the tiniest type I have ever seen) adds a hint of texture and warmth. Still, it's a nicely balanced and appealing Chardonnay from a maker that has consistently readjusted my instinctively somewhat negative attitude toward many fatter, softer, oakier, California Chardonnays.
