Dierberg's 2012 Chardonnay is gorgeous. Lemon oil, tropical fruit and butter are all tempered by the cool microclimate here. The flavors remain bright, focused and nuanced in a crystalline Chardonnay that stands out for its precision... Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Exemplifies an all around delicious Santa Barbara Chard. Lime zest, meyer lemon, and well integrated oak.

Beautiful Chardonnay. Light butter and oak, well balanced. Exactly what a California Chardonnay should be!
