1994 Healdsburg Vineyards Barrel Fermented Chardonnay, Carneros, Special Bottling No. 149 ($10).

Wine of the week

October 18, 1995|By MICHAEL DRESSER

This elegant, medium-bodied chardonnay with a light kiss of oak bears a strong resemblance to a top-notch Macon-Villages or Pouilly-Fuisse. There's fine appley, nutty flavor and a pleasant toastiness. It's not a thick, booming California chardonnay, but rather a wine with elegance and finesse at a most attractive price. These Healdsburg wines breeze in and out of the market quickly because quantities are small and the values are excellent.
