Ultimate Beverage Challenge 90 points - Toasted and nutty on the nose with unmistakable traces of lime, honeysuckle, and marmalade. Rich and honey-tinged on the palate with creme brulee, tropical mango, and minerals uniting on a fruity finish. Fresh and delicious.  (Jun 2016)

Wine Enthusiast 88 points - This well-made, widely distributed wine will serve a range of purposes and palates. Spiky acidity meets a muddle of apple, caramel and baked overtones of pineapple seasoned in nutmeg. Medium-bodied and food-friendly, it offers a long finish.  (Jun 2016)

We barrel fermented a bit less than half of this wine, and aged that portion in barrel for 9 months, offering the wine a touch of brown spice and vanilla, while cold fermenting the other half to maximize a fresh fruit-forward character. Bright lemon and apple aromas mingle with hints of toasty barrel complexity, and on the palate, pear and pineapple with spice and refreshing acidity will have you coming back for another glass. Enjoy this lively chardonnay now and over the next couple of years.
Producer
Our story begins more than 50 years ago, when a celebrated American dancer named Rod Strong settled in Sonoma County to pursue a second lifelong creative passion: winemaking. Rodney Strong Vineyards was the 13th winery bonded in the newly discovered Sonoma County wine industry. A trio of winemaking paths crossed when Rick Sayre joined the team as Winemaker in 1979, and again when the Klein Family, 4th generation California farmers, purchased the winery in 1989 and initiated a renewed commitment of modern artisan winemaking. Through the years, Rodney Strong Vineyards has earned the reputation for critically acclaimed Single Vineyard and Reserve wines, stand out Estate releases and best-in-class Sonoma County varietal wines.
