2014 Chardonnay ‘Carneros District’

el-novillero-2

Andrew Lanpasone’s Wine Watch in Ft. Lauderdale, FL has for many years been a bellwether wine shop, always ahead of the curve, always a little savvier than the competition. We were flattered – honored really – to have our Carneros District Chardonnay selected by Andrew and his team as one of their Top Ten Wines of the Year. It’s a great honor for us, and a sign of great judgment for them!

Here’s what they had to say:

The Neyers Chardonnay Carneros
Their bread and butter wine; there is 25% new barrel here and the grapes are sourced from three different vineyard sites. Has a good amount of ripe tropical fruit on the nose with hints of lightly toasted oak spice, a touch of vanilla and nutmeg. A fruit-forward California Chardonnay with a nice hand of lightly toasted oak, with good freshness and balance on the finish; not a blockbuster style but has lovely balance and a nice touch of oak. Finish 40 + Excellent +

Our 2014 Carneros District Chardonnay is now available. You’re going to love it.
