2009 Chardonnay, Santa Barbara County

Bedford 2009 Chard web

The fruit from the Los Alamos region offers a tropical character of pineapple and melon along excellent acidity. Fruit with this kind of structure warrants barrel fermention (20% new French oak) and a completed malolactic fermentation. Not every Chardonnay can handle traditional winemaking, but when it does, the wine becomes unctuous, buttery and complex. This is a rich, full bodied white with subtle fresh apple, melon notes harmoniously joined by soft toasty oak nuances. Almost sold out.  Bottle Price: $30.00

Tasting Room Open Daily 11 am to 5 pm ~ 448 Bell Street, Los Alamos, CA 93440 ~ PH: 805-344-2107 ~ E-mail: tastingroom@bedfordwinery.com
