Three bottles of Bulk Buy rated Chardonnay plus one bottle of a single vineyard, Perfect 10 Saturday Splurge! The QPR Kings at Pedroncelli are back with a new deal you don't want to miss.
IT'S A PEDRONCELLI DEAL!
If you've been following Reverse Wine Snob for any length of time then you know what we're talking about. Perhaps our most popular producer, Pedroncelli, has been the cause of many Insider Deal sell-outs. They have been responsible for some of our highest selling and most requested deals.
We don't expect today to be any different.
The first 3 bottles of today's 4-pack are the smooth, balanced and fruity 2021 Signature Selection Dry Creek Valley Chardonnay, which does not see any oak aging and does not undergo malolactic fermentation, letting the true character of the grape shine through.
Sourced from 3 vineyards in Dry Creek Valley, we gave it a Taste Rating of 9, corresponding to 91-93 points on the 100-point scale. It's a great wine to stock up on if you love this variety.
As good as that is, today's deal is topped off with one bottle of the $38 2021 F. Johnson Vineyard Chardonnay, sourced from a block of vines just on the Dry Creek side of the Russian River Valley/Dry Creek Valley dividing line (which goes right through the vineyard).
The wine spends 7 months in American oak and 100% of the barrels went through malolactic fermentation. Both delicious and complex, it also offers a great contrast to the Signature Selection wine. We liked this one so much we gave it a Perfect 10 Taste rating (94+ points).
All told, today's deal gets you both of these fabulous Pedroncelli wines at a significant discount, but only for the next 2 days -- unless it sells out sooner as these Pedroncelli deals often do…
Today's 4-pack deal includes 3 bottles of the 2021 Pedroncelli Signature Selection Dry Creek Valley Chardonnay plus 1 bottle of the 2021 Pedroncelli F. Johnson Vineyard Chardonnay for a total of just $64.99, or $16.25 a bottle.

Up first we'll check out the Signature Selection Chardonnay.
From the winery:
The Chardonnay fruit is sourced from three vineyards located at the southern end of Dry Creek Valley. They benefit from the cool microclimate and alluvial soils near the Russian River and produces Chardonnay with exceptional fruit and balance, culminating in great character.
Drought influenced the growing season, with less rain it lowered production and acidity but intensified the flavors. Chardonnay was harvested over the first two weeks of September. As a result, the wine shows high concentration of aromatics with varietal flavors and mild acidity.
Aromas of citrus and pineapple lead to juicy tropical flavors of mango, meyer lemon, and honey finishing clean and bright. A smooth-bodied Chardonnay highlighted by medium acidity, the taste lingers with tropical flavors and a light finish. Drink now—no aging required.
Produced and Bottled by Pedroncelli Winery
The 2021 Pedroncelli Dry Creek Valley Signature Selection Chardonnay opens with a pleasing, inviting aroma of green apple, citrus and a little tropical fruit (mostly pineapple) along with a bit of a floral and nutty note. It's a very nice start.
Taking a sip reveals a tasty, easy to drink Chardonnay with wonderful balance and no buttery notes at all. It features similar flavors to the nose with a bit more tropical fruit when tasting and a touch of spice. It's smooth and round with a bit of creaminess to it but still quite lively in the mouth.
There's a touch of honey leading into the finish of this dry wine (it has just 4 g/L of residual sugar). It ends crisp, clean, dry and long-lasting with the tart fruit lingering on your lips. This is a great all-around Chardonnay!

Next, we've got the F. Johnson Vineyard Chardonnay.
From the winery:
The Frank Johnson Vineyard was planted to Chardonnay more than 40 years ago and is a primary source for Pedroncelli. A particular block is chosen for our small lot barrel-fermented style Chardonnay. Two appellations meet in this vineyard: Russian River Valley on the south side and Dry Creek Valley to the north. Fruit comes entirely from a designated portion on the Dry Creek Valley side. Influenced by the cool climate that combines marine fog layers and the confluence of two main waterways, the resulting wine shows exceptional quality.
The bouquet of our F. Johnson Vineyard Chardonnay shows tropical fruit and toasted notes with a touch of vanilla. Rich and layered flavors of Crème brulee and peach following through to balanced acidity and a touch of toasty oak. Barrel fermentation and malo-lactic fermentation add underlying complexity and richness. Medium bodied, the fruit flavors blend with together for a bright and creamy finish. Enjoy now or within three years of release.
Produced and Bottled by Pedroncelli Winery
The 2021 Pedroncelli F. Johnson Vineyard Chardonnay opens with a very attractive aroma of citrus and tropical fruit plus touches of vanilla, butter, honeysuckle and crème brulee.
The first thing you'll notice when taking a sip is the smooth, very round, creamy and almost comforting mouthfeel. The fruit, which offers great depth, tends more to the tart, tropical side of things in the mouth with some zesty lemon as well. There are touches of oaky spice throughout and the wine features just enough of a buttery note to add to the experience without overwhelming it.
With plenty of complexity, this is very, very good Chardonnay! Don't drink it too cold to experience it at its best - straight out of the fridge is probably a bit too chilly.
It ends dry and very long with lots of lingering creamy notes and tart fruit. Lovely!

Here's what people are saying about our Insider Deals:
"I opened up our first bottle last weekend and was blown away. "
"Wow!! Just got my shipment. It is absolutely tremendous. "
"Hi Jon, Best thing I ever did is buy wine thru you...not been disappointed with any of them! Thank you SO MUCH!"
"Would you happen to be offering this one again anytime soon? I regret not buying more. This was exceptional!"
"I am seriously considering having the Insider Deals as my primary go-to. Why did I not do this sooner? Thank you"
"The only thing I have ever been disappointed in with an Insider Deal is that I didn't purchase more."

"This an absolutely amazing wine, Jon. And $5 shipping for four bottles? You've outdone yourself!"
"Thanks Jon. We already drank all 6 of the first order so we were ecstatic to see you offering it again. My wife and I both love it."
"You are a man after my own heart. I have always looked for the best and least expensive wine and you just made it easier. Cheers!"
"Hi Jon, well, I did something people have warned about - bought 6 bottles and should have bought 12!"
"Have had nothing but great bottles since I started ordering your recommendations. Thanks so much! "
"We've gotten in on three of the deals and have been VERY happy with the value. I originally was going to do a wine club thing but the insider deal appeals to me much more."
"The $5 or $10 shipping on the Insider Deals is another great part of the deal. We recently paid $27 to a winery in California to ship 6 bottles (same packaging as the insider deals)....yikes!"
"Just got my 6 bottles and having my first glass. WHY, WHY didn't I buy a case??!!"
"I really missed the boat by only getting four bottles of this offer last month. Should have bought least at a case."

"Wish I would have ordered more!! It was great. Looking back, I wish I didn’t open it at our annual pool party. It’s gone. **Sob**"

"I finally opened a bottle of this and it did not disappoint. Delicious!!!"
"Thanks for a great service! We’ve been loving your emails and wine deals!"
