Joey Tensley Chardonnay 2017 | Joey Tensley is a Star!
Joey Tensley Chardonnay 2017 presents a lemon, buttercup and fresh buttercream nose. Vibrant entry of ripe melon, papaya, mango, fresh coconut shaving and melba toast. While rich on the mid-palate but cut with refreshing acidity that keeps the wine lively on the palate. Yet clean and medium-rich finish. Drink Now-2020
Santa Barbara in 2017—deemed “better than ever” by Vinous’s Antonio Galloni—provided the conditions for a knockout, mouthwatering Chardonnay. “It’s all too rare to see the aspiration to deliver high quality at such a modest price point, so kudos to Tensley,” raved Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate while praising this scintillating Joey Tensley Chardonnay 2017.
Made with pristine fruit sourced from Monterey County and Santa Barbara, it offers rich, exotic fruit and stunning citrus aromatics. Joey Tensley Chardonnay 2017 delivers a smoking value at $19.99 per bottle for lovers of crisp coastal California whites. Shipping included on 7.
Winemaker Joey Tensley
Joey Tensley is a winemaker whose bottles are both critical and crowd favorites. Ask how he manages to keep prices south of $30. First racking up 26 impressive 95- to 99-point reviews from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. And then all you get is his aw-shucks Bakersfield farm boy shrug. “Tensley continues to make some of the most unctuous, decadent, yet balanced wines from Santa Barbara County,” raved Jeb Dunnuck in his Santa Barbara vintage report last year. “And if you factor in price, you can’t beat these wines. If you drink wine for pleasure, don’t miss these!”
Santa Barbara | Central Coast Wonders
The California native started Tensley Wines in 1998, carving out a niche in Santa Barbara Syrahs, especially those of the treasured 16-acre Colson Canyon Vineyard. Within a few years, his releases were landing on Wine Spectator’s list of Top Ten Wines in the World. It was just the beginning of an epic run of critical acclaim, which has included a near-perfect 99 point score from Robert Parker and a commendation from Food & Wine for making the Best Syrah over $20.
We met Joey Tensley back in the summer of 2009 and have been offering his wines ever since, creating a large cadre of loyalists among the Wine Access ranks who can’t get enough of his guzzle-worthy reds and whites delivered at razor-sharp prices. Fabulously high-toned and showing vibrant citrus acidity, this is a dazzling new entry from one of California’s hottest stars.
