Pairs well with: Chardonn-yay – I finally found a Chardonnay that I like.
Personally, I find that Chardonnay can be either too oaky, or not oaky enough – or sometimes taste like a different varietal altogether. However, after this – I could consider moving to the Chardonnay-side.
The Fun: The balance between fruit and oak character in this wine is impressive for what could be considered an “entry-level”, value-priced chardonnay. It has aromas and flavours of pear, red apple, vanilla, popcorn, lemon, and cream. It has a soft, creamy texture, and a fresh acidity which gives it great balance. It is medium-bodied, and has a fairly long, toasty, creamy finish.
