Moniker 2012 Chardonnay

Top 10 Summer Wines 2015


Moniker 2012 Chardonnay is delicately aromatic, complex and nuanced



Moniker 2012 Chardonnay
Mendocino County, California

A lovely white from the Russian River Valley, Moniker Chardonnay has a delicate bouquet, with notes of apple and pear. Aged in American oak, the wine has structure to balance its fruit flavor and minerality. The addition of Viognier and some spicy Chardonnay, aged in French oak, gives it complexity and nuance.

Rating: 13/20
