    Sine Qua Non Chardonnay 2012
    Pearl Clutcher
    Bottle (3)


    "The just bottled 2012 Chardonnay Pearl Clutcher is off the charts and up there with some of Manfred’s top whites. Coming from incredibly low yields and made from 100% Bien Nacido Chardonnay (from a variety of clones, and the first time this estate has released a 100% Chardonnay), it was aged 19 months in 92% new French oak barrels. It offers a kaleidoscope of aromas and flavors, with notions of ripe orchard and caramelized fruits, lemon curd, fresh baked bread and hints of toast soaring from the glass. Deep, concentrated and decadent, it has full-bodied richness, fabulous concentration and a massive texture that never seems heavy or cumbersome. I’d drink it over the coming 3-4 years, but it will evolve for longer." (97 pts. Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate #214, Aug. 2014)
