PJ Rex in her 1974 Alfa Romeo Spider. It's what started it all. As a thank you gift for keeping her Italian car purring, she gave her Italian boy friend at the time, Robert Rex, a wine making kit. She knew he was a good cook and a chemist and figured he'd be natural at making wine. He was. PJ still drives the Alfa, Robert still keeps it purring and together they make some pretty good wine, including this Chardonnay.
We made Chardonnay from Peter Haywood’s Los Chamizal Vineyard for the first time in 1980. Thirty years later Robert and Peter still collaborate on when to pick the grapes and from which rows to optimize the ripe fruit qualities.
We amplified these flavors by multiple yeast fermentations in the finest French oak barrels, 30% new, kept cool in our cave. The wine was aged surlees for 10 months, stirred every two weeks. The result is a multidimensional, balanced, lightly oaked, food friendly Chardonnay that is ready to drink now and will age beautifully for up to five years.

2012 White Rex
Simply delicious. Perfect anytime.
Like the Red Rex it has all the best elements of each of its components and what's more, its greater than the sum of its parts. Peach from the Pinot Grigio, crisp apple from the Sauvignon Blanc, that certain Chard-iness everyone secretly loves, and a touch of off-dry from the Riesling. Serve well chilled, preferably wearing a swim suit.
In a blend by Robert Rex, there’s a reason for everything. Here is what he says each varietal in White Rex brings to the table:
Pinot Grigio - White Peaches, Fresh fruit sweetness, Top palate flavors
Sauvignon Blanc - Brightness, Minerality, Side palate flavors, Tropical fruit
Chardonnay - Opens mid-palate flavors, Hint of oak, Depth, length and finish
Riesling - Acidity, Creates refreshing finish, Herbal qualities on the front of palate
The Blend is: Pinot Grigio 58%, Sauvignon Blanc 17%, Riesling 15%, Chardonnay 10%,
Stats - Alcohol: 13.9%, RS: 0.49%, pH at bottling: 3.57
