Wine Review: This pale straw colored un-oaked Chardonnay is a really good value. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic, bright and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mineral infused green apple with notes of white pepper. I also detected a hint of lemon verbena and almond towards the end. The finish is rather dry and its flavors and acidity linger nicely. This Chard is very food friendly and would pair well with roasted garlic chicken. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This unoaked Chardonnay displays Fox Run Vineyards' trademark subtle melon, lemon and white nectarine aromas. In the mouth, this wine reveals its cool climate birthplace: the mouthfeel is creamy, but not leaden, due to bright acidity and moderate alcohol. It's fresh and flavor-packed, with no distracting oak flavors.
