Davis Estates Hungry Blonde Chardonnay 2014
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Chardonnay Hungry Blonde only sees about 20% new oak, the rest neutral or stainless steel. It does go through malolactic, and there are 2,00 cases of this realistically priced Chardonnay. It is elegant, offering touches of white peach, pear and lemon blossom. It is zesty and best drunk over the next 1-2 years.
Wine SpectatorClean and pure, featuring pithy citrus, nectarine and tangerine flavors that are fresh and zesty. A touch edgy in texture, but easy to enjoy, with room to mellow. Drink now. 2,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastPeach and honeysuckle aromas rise out of the glass in this floral and inviting medium-bodied white that was fermented in stainless steel, then aged in French oak barrels, 20% of them new. Never over the top, it offers a richness on the finish.
