Lawer Estates Chardonnay Knights Valley 2016
Gonna tell you a secret -- when no one is around and the sun is out, especially if we’ve been doing chores or some such all day…
…we drink an entire bottle of cold, cool, clean buttery CA Chardonnay with guilty, delicious, I-totally-deserve-it gusto. It’s true. Hell, throw in some buttery popcorn while you’re at it! OH, and 50% OFF, natch!! Bring on the chores! 90 POINTS to boot!
Anyway, this IS buttery but not over-the-top at all -- it’s got nice acidity, zippy, mouth-watering clean citrus flavors, lemon-lime, coconut and pineapple notes, with solid length. FOR THIS PRICE? Load up! The Lawer family actually hails from Alaska (where your humble scribe lived for years in the 90s) and they own some terrific property in Knights Valley, not far from Peter Michael and a few of the big-gun names.
So -- get some sunshine in your life! $14! While we can keep it in stock...

About The Producer
Betsy Lawer is a third generation Alaskan banker who has proven that helping people succeed in the community is not only the right thing to do, but is the right approach to business. Betsy and David apply those core values to their winery. Betsy and David run Lawer Estates together with their extended family and their experienced team of vineyard managers, viticulturists and winemakers.
As a tribute to their love of business, whether it’s banking or winemaking, the Lawers designed their label to harken back to the era of fine, inscribed bonds or stock certificates--artfully merging their banking and winemaking worlds. The landscape etching on the Lawer Estates label is one of their favorite vineyard views.
The Lawer family is committed to sustainable farming and excellence in their grape growing and winemaking. Lawer Estates vineyards are sustainably farmed, thoughtfully managed and meticulously maintained, and the grapes are always hand picked at harvest. The Lawers hope to continue these traditions for generations to come.
