Rhys Vineyards Alpine Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

$95

The 2014 Chardonnay Alpine Vineyard is another terrific white from this team. Offering tons of white fruits, white peach, honeyed apples and a touch of toasty oak, with a saltiness on the finish, it's an impeccably balance, clean, pure Chardonnay that excels on its purity of fruit and elegance. It's beautiful today, but I suspect it will evolve nicely through 2024. Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Still very young, reminiscent of a grand cru Chablis.

Flowers on the nose, pineapple and white pepper on the palate. Bright and well balanced.

Wow. Why can’t more American chardonnays be like this? Stunning, this evolved in the glass, just wonderfully ethereal, burg style but on its own terms. Lemon curd, great acid, minerals, slight oak, medium finish. Pure class.

Nice rainy day Chardonnay. Lovely balance and nice minerality but also quite exotic and tropical. Pineapple and mango on the finish.
