<li> ripe and juicy <li> fine wine at a good price<br><br> Edna Valley Vineyard has been around for two decades and most of its earlier Chardonnays were made in a big, tropical fruit style. This one is ripe and full-bodied, but I find surprising levels
Ripe and full-bodied, and with surprising levels of complexity and just the right touch of toasty oak. Displays notes of white peach, custard, mineral and apple to accompany the subtle oak and tropical fruit. Drink up over the next two years.
