Erin De Santiago reviewed this wine as follows:

Grgich Hills Estate produces stellar wines, most notably their Chardonnay (and if you've seen the movie Bottleshock, you know why). This Chardonnay was made from certified organic and Biodynamic grapes, which undergo no malolactic fermentation. This gives the wine a more acidic touch, more like what you would expect in a Sauvignon Blanc, not a Chardonnay. There are bright mango and peach flavors and slight mineral notes. It's aged 19 months in French Oaks with 60% neutral, 30% new, and 10% 900 gallon casks, which give it a smooth and slightly toasty finish, a nice contrast to the acidic undertones.
