2017 Sea Slopes Chardonnay
90 Points - Wine Advocate
Fermented in stainless steel and neutral barrels, the 2017 Chardonnay Sea Slopes has a fresh, open nose of Golden Delicious apple, sliced pear, white blossoms and baker’s yeast. Light to medium-bodied, it offers fresh fruit flavors with honeyed accents, juicy acidity and a long flavorful finish.
90 Points - James Suckling
A slightly reduced nose here. The screw cap has wound this up a little, so give it some air. The palate has smoothly delivered fruit flesh and a luxurious core of pears. Drink now.
USA TODAY: Slip into Fall, Delicious.
The Sea Slopes Chardonnay from Fort Ross on the Sonoma Coast offers a wealth of flavor and complexity, with delightful fruit character and a silky texture. Its crispness and balance make it a versatile wine selection for fall.
Very Good: Aromas of lemon custard, yellow peach and apricot pit. Medium-full, this is a ripe, slightly lush style of Chardonnay with excellent ripeness. Good acidity and delicate yellow spice notes. Enjoy over the next 2-3 years.
