Wine Advocate 91 points - The outstanding 2012 Chardonnay Sonoma Coast was made from the Old Wente clone, with malolactic fermentation completely blocked, and only 25% new French oak used. Made in a Chablis-like style, it possesses lots of citrus and green apple notes, medium to full body, and wonderful freshness, delineation, acidity and intensity. Those who complain that California Chardonnays are too buttery or oaky will love what Auteur has accomplished with this cuvee. Drink it over the next 4-5 years. (Dec 2014)

Producer
Kenneth Juhasz and his wife and partner Laura are proprietors of this boutique label, concentrating on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Growing up in North Carolina, Juhasz paid his way through college working in fine restaurants and at a local wine retailer. He first developed his winemaking talents in Oregon's Willamette Valley working with veteran winemaker Ken Bernards of Ancien Wines . He also spent time in the Central Otago region of New Zealand's South Island helping to launch Hinton Estate. In 2002 he settled in Carneros as the winemaker for both the Robert Stemmler label and The Donum Estate. The focus of Auteur is on vineyard designated wines from cool microclimates in Oregon and California. Juhasz's winemaking philosophy is "to maintain the dualism between the varietals' masculine and feminine character." Grapes are currently sourced from the Willamette Valley (Shea Vineyard), Sonoma Coast (Durrell), Los Carneros and Mendocino Ridge.
