2010 Tolosa Estate Chardonnay Tolosa Vineyards-Edna Valley For Earth Day

Earth Day 2012 and my white wine of choice was the Tolosa Vineyards Estate Chardonnay. Located in the coastal hills of San Luis Obispo between Santa Barbara and Paso Robles, Tolosa produces balanced quality wines which express both the climate and their commitment to sustainable growing practices. Larry Brooks winemaker nails this chardonnay perfectly.

On the nose ripe pear followed by orange zest gets the senses racing. Baking spice with lovely tropical fruit notes round out my aromas. Each swirl gave me the sensation as if I were standing on the hills with the cool coastal winds blowing in my face.

Crisp and refreshing. Juicy pear/green apple/melon quickly followed by the orange zest/spice starts off your tasting pleasure. The pear/apple combination carries long into the finish with juicy lemon and mineral notes completing the wine. Light bodied but packs a ton of flavor in each glass. Truly enjoyed this Chardonnay Matt!

I highly recommend checking out Tolosa Winery by clicking the link. Visit, taste and enjoy their exceptional wines.
