92pt single vineyard great drinking Santa Barbara County, California, Chardonnay

Parker’s 2014 Chardonnay, Duvarita Vineyard, Santa Barbara County, is a very nice drinking Chardonnay. Notes of green apple and tropical fruit with some cream, hint of oak, pleasant acidity and a medium to long finish. I prefer it nicely chilled. Drink now! And enjoy.
