Rhys Vineyard Chardonnay 2003 is exceptional wine: dense, suffused with a minerality that a traditionalist would call Burgundian.

Rhys Vineyards has the potential of becoming one of California’s most compelling estates and the sure and rigorous palate of its owner. That’s an unbeatable combination for wine greatness anywhere in the world.
