90 Points – Beppi Crosariol 

“Upper Bench specializes in two complete food groups: wine and cheese. So, it’s billed as a “winery and creamery,” one reason you might expect the chardonnay here to be ripe and buttery and a fine partner for cow’s milk brie or the estate’s signature “gold” cheese. The 2015, fermented partly with wild yeast, is medium bodied, with a silky texture and soft, tropical-fruit core supported by notes of vanilla, butter and subtle toasty oak. Deftly balanced.”
