with the following review:
Great aromatic nose filled with notes of mango, honey, and peach which makes me think of enjoying a bottle on a warm summer evening. Nice acidity with crisp tastes of tropical fruit and peach with a toasty oak finish. I was able to find a bottle for $39.99...good buy!

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.
Grgich Hills Estate Chardonnay 2007, Napa Valley, California, United States: California Chardonnay as good as it gets! Buttery, voluptuous layers of ripe peaches, pears and other tree fruit. No malolactic fermentation so the vibrancy of the fruit character is preserved. A smoky finish. Drink: 2010-2015. 346304 14.40% XD 750 mL $54.00 Score: 94/100. April 28, 2010 Full Review
