Fairly close in quality and overal consistency for both the Chardonnay and the Sauvignon Blanc of Pelter on their own or when compared one to the other. My tasting notes follow for the last three years
Pelter, Chardonnay, 2007: Golden-straw in color, light to medium-bodied and unoaked, opens with grapefruit and pineapple notes, those going on to citrus, green apples and pears. Stylish, juicy and long, finishing on a light flinty-mineral note. Drink now. Score 90.
Pelter, Chardonnay, 2006: Unoaked, this light to medium-bodied white is showing fine acidity to keep it lively. Light golden-straw in color and aromatic with crisp peach, citrus and flinty minerals. Drink now. Score 89.
Pelter, Chardonnay, Unoaked, 2005: Lovely! Fresh and lively, with generous but not at all overbearing acidity and showing appealing peach, apricot and tropical fruits on a background that tantalizes with hints of freshly cut grass. Drink up. Score 90.
Pelter, Sauvignon Blanc, 2007: Light, bright and lively, with pears and passion fruit at its core, those opening to show grapefruit, floral and light mineral notes in the background. Unoaked, a fresh and thoroughly appealing wine finishing with an elegant note. Drink now. Score 89.
Pelter, Sauvignon Blanc, 2006: Light damp-straw in color and un-oaked, with fine balancing acidity to set off refreshing aromas and flavors of tropical fruits, white peaches, green apples, and, as in the previous release, a hint of celery. Drink up. Score 90.
Pelter, Sauvignon Blanc, 2005: Blended with 10% of Semillon, un-oaked, as are all of Pelter’s whites, this crisp and delicious wine offers up bright and generous aromas and flavors of guava, grapefruit, green apples and, lurking in the background, a nearly unconscious hint of celery. Drink up. Score 91.
