STEVE TANZAR RATING: 92
STEVE TANZAR REVIEW: Pale gold. Smoky, mineral-driven nose hints at apple butter, iodine, jasmine and buttered toast. Juicy and tight, with bracing acidity and a distinctly saline, iodiney character to its fresh orchard fruit flavors. A refreshingly bitter lemon pith quality adds lift and cut to a long, smoky, penetrating finish.
From an old Wente clone, the 2007 Chardonnay Estate (which was aged in one-third new oak) is one of Dehlinger’s bigger cuvees, with just under 1,800 cases being produced. Although closed at present, it reveals plenty of bright citrus and nectarine notes intermixed with hints of white currants and pears. Elegant and medium-bodied with a distinctive minerality, but playing it close to the vest, this wine should open up and prove to be outstanding with another 8-12 months of bottle age.
