Ken's Wine Rating: Very Good (89)

Review date: September 6, 2017

Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from Jeff Gordon is very good. It opens with an appealing pear and pineapple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a tangy blood orange with notes of minerality and peach pit. I also detected hints of pineapple and touch of pink grapefruit in the background. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors linger for quite some time. This Chard would pair well with Emeril’s pan fried spicy crab cakes. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2015 Chardonnay has a vibrant, medium golden color with excellent concentration throughout. The enticing nose is fresh and clean with scents of lime zest, green apple, marzipan and Bosc pear. Upon the first sip, the wine is rich with lemon custard, honey and pear flavors on the palate. There is a long finish and the richness on the palate is countered with balancing acids. This creates exceptional texture and a layered flavor profile that gives a sense of harmony in the wine. Enjoy with roasted chicken, shrimp salad or Oysters Rockefeller.
