Byron Chardonnay 1996

Santa Maria Valley, Santa Barbara County, Central Coast, California, United StatesRipe peach, pear, honey spice and floral aromas. The attack is rich and elegant with crisp acidity. A touch leaner than its Napa counterpart, the predominate flavours here are pear, citrus and apples. The aftertaste is very creamy and toasty. The flavours need a bit more time to integrate. Very fine intensity.Tasted: 01 May 1998Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 24.95 Producer: Nielson WinesDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
