Our best unoaked Chardonnay...
Robert Parker just confirmed what we already new...
2009 Chardonnay is an outstanding example...represents a terrific bargain." -- Robert Parker (Issue 202, Aug 2012)
2009 Travis Monterey Chardonnay...$15.99
With the 2009 vintage, the Travis lineage as one of California’s finest and most distinctive Chardonnays continues. The emphasis is on full ripeness, brilliant fruit, and lively, refreshing natural acidity. This unoaked, unfiltered Chardonnay is always a favorite at The Wine and Cheese Place.
"The fully mature 2009 Chardonnay is an outstanding example with notes of tropical fruits, pears, honeysuckle and citrus. These are pure, natural tasting Chardonnays that need to be consumed in their first several years of life. Dan Kravitz did not make a 2010.
One of the successful California estates from Hand Picked Selections, Travis produces a stainless steel fermented and aged Chardonnay that represents a terrific bargain."
Rated 90/100 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
