The Ponzi Vineyards Reserve Chardonnay 2013 gives notes of persimmon, vanilla bean, caramelized banana, nectarine and hints of rainwater. The mouth is lightly textured, but full of cinnamon, cardamom, lime zest and lemon meringue flavors. The finish is long with a burst of acidity to maintain bright fruit throughout. The Ponzi Vineyards Reserve Chardonnay 2013 is a blend of Ponzi’s LIVE Certified Sustainable vineyards; Avellana and Aurora Vineyards in the Chehalem Mountains along with Sunset View Vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills and organically farmed Thistle Vineyards in the Dundee Hills.
