2010 Rhys Chardonnay Alpine Vineyard

Community Tasting Note


Friday, April 6, 2012 - April 2012 Rhys Visit--Taste The 2010s (Rhys Estate (At The Winery)): Bottle was opened earlier in the morning, tasted in late afternoon. Listed alc 13.2% with 25% new wood. As compared to the 2010 Horseshoe chard, this Alpine has the edges more filled in, texturally more complete and rounder. Lemon zest, almost grapefuit-like in the intensity of the acidity. Brisk and long with orange oil. One of the best CA chards I have tasted and in my view a standard setter for what CA chard can be. Tremendous.
