Gundlach-Bundschu Estate Vineyard Chardonnay 2018 Review

Creamy, balanced, and rich - this is how it’s done. Cali is known for their big ol’ Chards with heavy oak, vanilla bean intensity ,and high alcohol, but what if all these things were in actual harmony? You'd have this wine. The balance here is great. The oak is soft and plays well with the creamy mouthfeel. The acidity is just right, and the alcohol is very well integrated. At under $30 this is one helluva great wine.
