Arboleda Chardonnay 2015

Arboleda Chardonnay 2015 95 pts Decanter

Tasting Notes

March 2017 - Arboleda’s white wines are fresh and crisp with lifted aromatics which is quite evident with the 2015 Arboleda Chardonnay, which showcases excellent fruit purity with a great acid line and tremendous vibrancy and energy. Aromatic notes of pear and citrus are nuanced with some toast and spice tones on the nose. Medium fuller bodied, the clean and precise white orchard and citrus flavors are interjected with a touch of almond and a tangy salty note and some stony, minerality. This delicious wine is perfect for those who do not like the traditional Californian style. This wine has the scores too, with 95 points from Decanter and 93 points from James Suckling, who wrote: “A chardonnay that shows sliced apple and pear aromas with hints of stone and mineral. Medium to full body, lively and very intense with bright acidity and lemon rind.” Dry, crisp and layered, this clean and vibrant Chardonnay should drink well over the next 2-3 years quite easily.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

95 pts 2016 Decanter World Wine Awards - Gold Medal
Elegant nose, understated, with spicy notes of clove, cinnamon and fresh toast. Then the wine emerges in the glass, layered, vigorous, with harmonious flinty, salty, citrusy and almondy character. It is profound, savoury-sweet in that way really good Chardonnay can be. An impressive wine with a tremendous energy.
93 pts James Suckling
A chardonnay that shows sliced apple and pear aromas with hints of stone and mineral. Medium to full body, lively and very intense with bright acidity and lemon rind. Drink now. Screw cap.



Winemaker Notes

This light greenish-yellow Chardonnay stands out for its fine, delicate structure and good balance. The fresh and complex nose offers aromas of mandarin, orange blossom, white peach and light notes of pear. The palate impresses with a vibrant acidy and its characteristic minerality.
