Winemaker Notes

The Benchbreak Chardonnay opens with lively fruit and oak spice aromas. Citrus, pineapple, white peach and apple flavors carry through the mid-palate and into the fresh, clean finish.

COMMENTARY: Always a player from California's Central Coast, the Cambria Estate Vineyards & Winery Chardonnay—made from the certified sustainable Katherine's Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley AVA—has produced a solid effort. TASTING NOTES: The 2015 Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay deftly intertwines ripe core, savory oak, and a long palate presence. Enjoy this wine with scallops sautéed in brown butter.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2015 Chardonnay Bench Break offers up notes of ripe apricots, honeydew melon and grapefruit with touches of brioche and toasted almonds. Medium-bodied, it has a pleasantly creamy texture with tons of stone fruit and citrus flavors, finishing long. Awesome value!
