Bratcher 2009 Mary Ellis Sierra Madre Vineyard Chardonnay (Santa Maria Valley)

Editors' Choice

This marches in a completely opposite direction from the oaky, fruity, buttery style of modern Chardonnay. It's bone dry and minerally, with mouthwatering acidity and traces of oranges and limes. The minerality is like a lick of cold steel. What a great food wine at a great price, although production was a paltry 230 cases.
