Natalie's Score: 92/100

This Chardonnay was completely fermented in oak barrels giving it a creamy, rich texture and taste. Heady aromas of baked bread, vanilla, ripe tropical fruit, peaches, pears, green apples. Round, deep, complex and satisfying with enough acidity to make it food friendly. This winery is also famous for it's expressive pinot noirs and sparkling wines. Try it tonight.

Chardonnay food pairings: baked ricotta on toast, stir-fried veggies, brie cheese, chicken tetrazzini, duck a l'orange.

Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Although well known for their sparkling wines Gloria Ferrer produces a wide variety of wines. The 2009 Carneros Chardonnary has scents of chamomile, straw and citrus and crisp flavors of lemon and spice.
What this Chardonnay lacks in immediate fruity richness, it more than makes up for in austere, complex minerality. The flavors veer towards lemon and lime, with hints of tropical fruit and the sweet smokiness of barrel aging. The acidity is vital and rich. It’s a wine that develops complexity as it warms and opens up in the glass. Special Designation: Editors’ Choice. Score: 91. Source: Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast, Oct. 2012
