Handley 2011 Whispering Oaks Vineyard Chardonnay (Mendocino County)

Heady and well made, Handley's Whispering Oaks, a certified-organic vineyard near the Ukiah Valley gets more heat than the winery's estate vines, giving this wine a fuller body and texture than its 2011 estate Chardonnay. With flavors of pear, apple and spice, it's crisp yet rich with just the smallest ounce of a barrel imprint, a match for roast chicken with herbs. Virginie Boone
