Wine Spectator 88 points - Opulent and on the oaky side, showing Burgundy-like peach and apple flavors, accented by baking spice details. Just a bit heavy in the balance. Drink now through 2018. 310 cases made.-BS  (Jun 15 2014)

Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2010 Chardonnay is fermented in egg-shaped concrete tanks and 30% of the wine sees new French oak. There’s a toasted note of baked bread or almond that sets off the complex bouquet. Aromas later open to peach, apricot, exotic fruit, honeysuckle, vanilla and spice. This is a sophisticated and impeccable wine with the pedigree of an important, oak-aged Chardonnay from the New World. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.  (Aug 2013)

OTH 91 points - A dense, fruity white with toasted oak, pie and caramel. Full-bodied and rich with yogurt and lemon-meringue character. Wood still shows a lot. Drink now.  (Oct20 /201)

Wine maker notes
Monteverro Chardonnay is bursting with sweet aromas of pear, honey, vanilla, apricot, and white chocolate. It is balanced by mild notes of white truffles and roasted nuts. The first sips are fresh revealing enticing stone fruit and citrus flavors of white peach and blood orange; the wine quickly evolves to showcase a complex white with excellent minerality and a lingering finish with hints of candied orange peel and marzipan. The wine undergoes 100% malolactic fermentation on fine lees and is then aged in 30% new French oak barrels and 70% egg-shaped concrete tanks for 14 months.
