90pts Wilfred Wong
The Rombauer Vineyards Chardonnay is one of the most consistent wines to be found. The 2018 vintage stays true-to-form. This wine is attractive, classy, and has a soft touch on its crisp finish. Its time-honored aromas and flavors of ripe apples, a hint of peach fuzz, and a suggestion of minerality make it a perfect first-course wine. (Tasted: August 2, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
Pale yellow with a green tinge to the hue. Aromas of yellow peach, mango with a slight citrus note intertwine seamlessly with vanilla and spice. The palate is rich and round, with the mango and vanilla fighting for the lime light, while the cream texture, vanilla and slight butter combine seamlessly. The balanced acidity closes out the finish bringing the multiple components into balance.
