Esser Chardonnay California 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This smells like fruit salad, full of peach, pineapple, even some cherry in a very fruity style. On the palate this is surprisingly bright, if a bit simple, with distinct notes of vanilla and pineapple fruit in a medium weight style. The finish is short but clean and balances the ripe fruit against bright acidity. A clean style well suited to simple preparations of white fish. 84pts

Lemon, melon, oak, and vanilla. Typical creamy marshmallow - really nice.

This is my favorite of the Esser Vineyards line. I love melting chocolate in my mouth and sipping on it.
