2008 Peay Vineyards Estate Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast

91 points — International Wine Review

The Estate Chardonnay exhibits a medium straw hue with fragrant floral aromas of pear and a touch of mint and lime. The palate is refined and nicely focused, with a velvet texture and beautifully integrated ripe fruit and toasted oak. The oak treatment shows the deft hand of winemaker,Vanessa Wong, who has produced an elegant bottling in perfect harmony and balance with an impressive finish. Whole cluster pressed and fermented with 100% natural yeast and aged sur lie in 50% new French barriques for 11 months.
