Wine & Spirits Magazine named Ponzi Aurora Chardonnay 2014 Year’s Best Chardonnay. Rated a stellar 94 points by W&S, Chardonnay vines at Aurora Vineyard range from 10-20 years old.

“This makes the most of a warm, generous vintage, offering plenty of body as well as drive. The scents of hazelnut and pear are lavish, with caramel accents that assert themselves but don’t overreach.
