A classic Chardonnay that was aged all in neutral French oak barrels and puncheons, the 2011 Donelan Chardonnay Nancie has an apple, citrus, and lime scented array of fruit to go with background minerality, vanilla crème, and hints of nuttiness that emerge over the evening. Racy, focused, and clean on the palate, with knockout purity of fruit and building richness and length, it has a cool-climate feel with its precision and focus, yet holds onto beautiful California fruit and texture.
Donelan's 2011 Chardonnay Nancie is pretty and expressive. Another wine with lovely textural depth and nuance, the 2011 is laced with dried apricots, nectarines, flowers and mint, all of which come together in the glass. Though medium in body, the 2011 impresses for its soft, caressing personality and terrific overall balance. The partial-malo style is highly appealing here. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. (AG)
Tangy, with a touch of butterscotch woven into the green apple and citrus character. Ends with a crisp, mouthwatering, flinty edge. (JL, Web Only 2013)
