Clay Creek Vineyards California Chardonnay 2022

Clay Creek Vineyards California Chardonnay 2022

94 POINTS & 5 STARS: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
94 POINTS: Wine Direct Tasting Team

"Generous and opulent, the wine shows mango, pineapple, toasty oak and French vanilla characters on the nose, followed by a delectably expressed palate offering excellent weight and richly textured mouthfeel, making it gorgeously drinkable. At its best: now to 2027."
- Sam Kim; The Wine Orbit

“It took me a long time to try previous vintages of Clay Creek Chardonnay but I didn't mess about with the 2022. Quality is high throughout the region and wow this is a stunner! More than a match for the 94 Point 2021. Toasted hazelnut, ripe pear and baked biscuits. Stone fruit flavours in the mouth together with honeydew melon. A beautiful long finish. Again it's so balanced. Delicious!”
- 94 Points, Wine Direct Tasting Team

Beautifully integrated aromas of melon, ripe pear and vanilla, highlighted by delicate hints of white flowers. Bright and balanced, this full-bodied Chardonnay displays flavors of peach, honeydew melon, pineapple and crème brulée. The taste has a lovely, complex structure and good acidity, which leads to a rich, ripe juicy finish.

The Chardonnay grapes were carefully selected from diverse vineyards in California. The vineyards are blended from cool and warm climates to create complexity and layers of flavor.
