Professional Wine Reviews for Clos Pegase Chardonnay Hommage Mitsuko's Vineyard 2014

Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
The 2014 Chardonnay Hommage is a real beauty, offering up notes of orange blossom, buttered citrus, caramelized apples and subtle oak as well as medium to full body, outstanding concentration, and a long, rich, yet zesty finish. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.
Winery
Bursting with aromas of bakers spice, brioche and apple blossoms, this chardonnay has all the hallmarks of Carneros terroir. Bright acidity counterbalances ripe fruit, verging int the melon, cantaloupe and pear, spectrum, whilst keeping some green apple flavors for balance. The soft touch of oak helps support the complexity and depth of the wine, giving a touch of vanilla alongside the more secondary characteristics of fresh croissant and toasty hazelnuts. The palate is long and evolving allowing the drinker to savor all the character and intensity this wine has to offer. 475 six-packs produced.

Winery Clos Pegase

Region: California

California as a wine producing region has grown in size and importance considerably over the past couple of centuries, and today is the proud producer of more than ninety percent of the United States' wines. Indeed, if California was a country, it would be the fourth largest producer of wine in the world, with a vast range of vineyards covering almost half a million acres. The secret to California's success as a wine region has a lot to do with the high quality of its soils, and the fact that it has an extensive Pacific coastline which perfectly tempers the blazing sunshine it experiences all year round. The winds coming off the ocean cool the vines, and the natural valleys and mountainsides which make up most of the state's wine regions make for ideal areas in which to cultivate a variety of high quality grapes.

Country: United States

For three hundred years now, the United States has been leading the New World in wine production, both in regards to quantity and quality. Wine is actually produced in all fifty states across the country, with California leading the way by an enormous margin. Indeed, as much as eighty-nine percent of all wines to come out of the United States are produced in California, where the fertile soils and sloping mountain sides, coupled with the long, hot summers provide ideal conditions for producing high quality, European style red, white and rosé wines. With over a million acres of the country under vine, the United States sits comfortably as the fourth largest wine producer in the world, where imported grape varietals from all over the Old World are processed using a successful blend of traditional and contemporary techniques.
