CedarCreek Estate Winery Platinum Chardonnay 2009
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
CedarCreek Estate Winery Platinum Chardonnay 2009 Wine Review
An opulent chardonnay made from whole berry cluster pressed grapes that were 100% barrel-fermented and aged 10 months in French oak. This results in a luxuriously rich and layered chardonnay with generous aromas of peach, apple and Asian pear. Phenomenally delicious! 4.6/5 Chardonnay food pairings: fresh crab, just pulled from the pot on the stove, lobster in butter, corn dishes.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings
|Our very best wines are bottled as Platinum. It's our reminder that the choices we make have to add up to one better than gold. Made from clones 76, 96 and Washington, the Platinum Chardonnay was whole berry cluster pressed and 100& barrel fermented. Hand-harvested at CedarCreek, Greata Ranch, Mauz and Duncan Vineyards, we aged the 2008 vintage 11 months in French oak from Coopers François Frères, Cadus, Berthomieu, Remond and Daragaud & Jaegle. Without these details, our Chardonnay wouldn't be Platinum. And the results show in every bottle. On that you have our word.|
