Varner El Camino Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

$23.99

Despite its very reasonable price, the 2014 Chardonnay El Camino Vineyard delivers serious intensity, richness and nuance. Broad, ample and phenolic, the 2015 exudes all the classic Varner signatures, structure being the most obvious of these. Yellow orchard fruit, mint, candied lemon, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes are front and center...This is a very serious Chardonnay for $25. Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

Another great wine from the Varner twins at an affordable price. Definitely an elegant style of Santa Barbara Chardonnay with crisp apple, pear, lemon and a streak of minerality. Recently bottled and should only get better.

A sorry excuse for a Chardonnay . Flavorless and absent of smell . Horrible .

Smells tropical. Definitely kinda creamy, but crazy acidity and minerality. Killer food wine and dangerously quaffable.

Medium body, nice viscosity and bright acidity - the sweetness is balanced and never gets in the way at any point. I get dehydrated green apples, some lemon peel, a slight presence of mint or other herbs, and soggy chamomile after making tea - in a good way. The finish was interesting with a hard boiled egg note - both the egg white and yolk. Really fun with a funky twist

Good wine. Soft on the palate. Light acidity, hints of lemon and butter.
