Fess Parker Santa Barbara County Chardonnay 2017
|Region||California, Central Coast, Santa Barbara|
This is a steal for under $20, offering aromas of apple flesh, ripe pear, brioche and yellow grapefruit on the nose. The palate is crisp with citrus yet broad with fresh Gravenstein and Gala apple flavors.
Fess Parker's 2017 Chardonnay (Santa Barbara County) is a gorgeous appellation-level wine, and an even better value. Varietal orchard fruit and tropical flavors are nicely lifted by floral notes in this very pretty and highly expressive barrel-fermented Chardonnay. Vineyard sources are Rodney's, Los Alamos, Sierra Madre, Ashley's, Paragon, White Hills and Bien Nacido.
A spicy white, with hints of richness to the peach cobbler and apple pastry flavors. Buttery notes show on the creamy finish. Drink now. 31,342 cases made.
