Chardonnay 2012... 91 Points!

Our 2012 Battonage Chardonnay was awarded 91 points in the October issue of Wine Enthusiast. "It smells like vanilla...  and tastes creamy and buttery backed by ripe apple and a touch of lemon. It feels rich in texture, elegant rather than bold."  A great buy for $18!
