The 2011 Bench Break Chardonnay has rich aromas of pineapple, white peach, and citrus blossom with hints of slate alongside the supporting notes of toast and vanilla. Beautiful minerality leads into a viscous mid-palate full of bright fruit flavors, and finishes with balanced acidity.


AG 93 WA 92 WE 91 Pts - According to Antonio Galloni - Smoke, crushed rocks, apricots and dried pears are some of the many notes that jump out from the glass in the 2011 Chardonnay Bench Break. A layered, textured Chardonnay, the 2011 blossoms on the palate with tons of depth. Even with all of its richness, the 2011 remains light on its feet and a model of pure grace. There is so much to like here, including the exceedingly fair price.


According to Wine Advocate - Even richer, with gorgeously ripe apple tart, toasted hazelnut, brioche and white flower-like aromas and flavors, the 2011 Chardonnay Bench Break is full-bodied, richly texture and fresh on the palate, with a layered, multi-dimensional feel. It’s a classy Chardonnay meant for drinking over the coming 2-3 years. Drink now-2016.


According to Wine Enthusiast - This Chard competes well with others that are considerably more expensive. The palate exhibits the cool growing conditions of the vintage with tart acidity that brightens flavors of tropical fruit and orange. Notes of oak and lees lend coplexity to this delicious wine. Editor's Choice!


Winemakers Notes - Try our Bench Break Chardonnay with mushrooms, squash, peaches, roasted chicken, and grilled pork loin. It also pairs well with cheeses such as Cheddar, Gruyere and Brie.100% Chardonnay. 14.5% ABV. Rated 90+
