- Baer Chardonnay "Shard" Washington 2011 Product #26604 (In Stock)
No oak here, but tons and tons of flavor. Just 390 cases made of this wine that starts with pristine fruit fermented in stainless steel and then made creamier by regular lees stirring. Aromas and flavors of heirloom apples and orchard fruits shine here with an intriguing savory note weaving in and out as well. Clean, crisp, and a little creamy with a hint of salty caramel on the long, juicy, finish. Fine stuff.
"Subdued aromas of peach, nut meats and mint, plus a hint of crab apple. Supple, rich and broad, with good chewy extract to the stone fruit and spice flavors. Finishes saline, tactile and persistent. I certainly don't miss the oak."International Wine Cellar 89 points
