Dierberg Chardonnay 2011
The 2011 Dierberg Chardonnay leads with vivid aromas of deep mango, rich lemon, a hint of fresh lemon peel, and creamy hazelnut. On the palate the wine is lush citrus: lemon curd, lemon blossoms, and lemon rind with a slight tasted sesame seed accent. The wine finishes with the focused acidity and a tightly wound structure that the Dierberg Chardon- nays have come to be known for.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine is dominated by oak. It's all about buttered toast, vanilla and butterscotch. Underneath is a ripe Chardonnay with tropical fruit flavors, but brightened by a shower of brisk acidity.
