Pfendler Chardonnay blind tasting winner of the month.

The late Peter Pfendler planted his first vineyard on their 300 acre Sonoma Mountain ranch in 1992.  Peter passed away in 2007 and since then 2 more vineyards have been planted.  Greg Bjornstad (formerly with Flowers) is the hands-on winemaker.  Very small production from this estate (600 cases total), so not something that you’ll find in the big box or corner store.

My weekly group never pulls out a lot of Chardonnays, but we decided it was time!  We tasted the following:

A beautiful golden straw color with gorgeous aromas of honeysuckle, Asian pear, honeycomb and sweet apples.  Full in body, this wine offers a honeyed mid-palate showing crisp lemon tart, crème brûlée, toasted spices and a scintillating acidity that keeps this sultry wine in impeccable balance.
