NOT a fan of this wine. While it is somewhat nice on the palate, with apple and pear, the harsh finish gives me goosebumps (and not in a good way!).

Great value chardonnay; not too oaky, pairs well with food, consistently good. I buy it by the case when it's on sale.

The Sterling Vintner's Collection Chardonnay is a pale straw color, with concentrated aromas of floral fruit, honeysuckle, pineapple, green apple, soft oak, vanilla and toast followed by flavors of green apple, tropical melon, touches of mineral, baked apple and spice, caramel and French vanilla. The wine shows bright acidity on the entry with a creamy mid palate.

Wine Tasting NotesGolden straw in color. Aromas of bright golden delicious apples, Fuji apple and Bartlett pear fruit with hints of caramel and pumpkin pie spice. The flavors are rich, ripe orchard fruit with a hint of lemon curd and baked spiced apple. The balanced acidity helps maintain the focus and food pairing potential of this full bodied chardonnay.

Our Sterling Vineyards Napa Valley Chardonnay comes from the southern half of Napa Valley, including vineyards in the cool Carneros region as well as the warmer Rutherford region. Aromas and flavors of fresh pear and ripe apple mingle with vanilla and oak spice from barrel fermentation and aging.
