Rodney Strong 2009 Chalk Hill Chardonnay

Clear, pale lemon-gold. Clean, medium-plus intensity citrus-mineral with ripe fruit and obvious oak. Dry, medium acidity and body. Medium intensity tropical and green fruit, and vanilla oak. Nicely balanced, nothing too much to the fore. Nice lingering finish. 13.5% alcohol. This is exactly what I was looking for tonight; also nice to see that it’s a carbon-neutral, solar powered vineyard. Recommended. $30 at Crosstown. See Rodney Strong Vineyards and the winemaker’s notes.
