This eye-popping Chardonnay earned a 90-Point rating from Wine Enthusiast magazine —“Begins with unique, distinctive anise (an aromatic Mediterranean herb) and mint aromas and flavors, along with white pepper and white peach. It’s not a super-ripe, lush wine, but it’s a rich, complex one. Stream-lined with acid and oak, this baby is full of finesse, depth and harmony.”

It is also a four-time medal winner in last summer’s major wine competitions. Robert Parker Jr.’s Wine Advocate publication calls Gainey Vineyards one of “California’s Finest Producers of Chardonnay.” Wine Enthusiast magazine chimed in too, calling Gainey a “U.S. Great Producer of Chardonnay.”

This 2000 vintage Chardonnay has developed beautifully in the bottle and would make a perfect accompaniment to seafood salads, sautéed sole, chicken paillard or even sushi.
