Portola Springs Vineyard produces our most austere and mineral chardonnay. “Acid-freaks” should again be thrilled with the 2009 vintage. While it has a tad more weight than past vintages there is ample citrus fruit and the distinct “crushed rock” character present in all vintages. To once again reiterate -This is not a “cocktail” Chardonnay its structure and power demand food."

Vinous: 93 Points

"An intensely saline wine the 2011 Chardonnay Portola Springs Vineyard will appeal most to readers who enjoy tense nervous whites. Lime lemon slate and crushed rocks are laced together in a Chardonnay that pulses with pure vibrancy. The 2011 finishes with notable tension and energy. "
