Connoisseur’s Guide to California Wines has just published a roundup of Chardonnays, and McIntyre’s 2011 Estate SLH scored a whopping 91 points! They praised it for its great style and polish, and energetic fruit. We couldn't agree more, and hope you will take advantage of this fabulous summer-rific wine, before it’s sold out!
MCINTYRE Estate Chardonnay, Santa Lucia Highlands 2011 - $28.00
Wonderfully well-measured in richness with lots of deep and energetic fruit comfortably married to very complementary oak, McIntyre's Estate Chardonnay is a keenly composed wine that shows great style and polish. It has fine palatal weight and is supple in feel with neatly placed acidity lending brightness and length. It is downright delicious now but will only grow better with age, and it we expect it to drink well on the strength of its balance for a good five or six years.
