Tensley Joey Tensley Chardonnay 2017
The 2017 Chardonnay is fresh and outspoken. Sourced from California’s Central Coast, this wine offers the best of Monterey and Santa Barbara County. Citrus and minerality uphold the verve of the wine, while caramel and toasted nuts bring round texture and enjoyable structure. This wine is well balanced, energized and priced to be the perfect every day Chardonnay.
The value-priced 2017 Chardonnay from Joey Tensley offers up classic aromas of lemon curd, citrus zest, nutmeg and a light touch of oak. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, pure and crisp, with good concentration and a nice, racy finish. This tasty offering is fermented and matured in tank (where it sees some oak), with malolactic fermentation blocked. It's nice to see such a good wine offered for such a modest tariff.
