2011 Neyers Chardonnay Carneros
Neyers is a super dependable winery. I can’t think of a bottle I’ve had from them that disappointed so I was excited to see the Chardonnay at my Costco; especially during the summertime when I’m looking for good white wines. Price was $24.99, so my expectations were high (plus I love Carneros wines), and this wine delivered.
It is signature Carneros from the start. The nose is a good mix of floral aromas surrounded by a little citrus and oak that carry through to the palate. In the mouth, this is rich and layered, starting with a touch of citrus flavor and moving to a buttery (but not too much) and creamy finish with subtle oak notes. I get turned off by Chardonnays that overdo any one of these elements, but this bottle hits them all just perfect. A real treat, and a solid addition to our Bronze Rated list..
