This lush, crisp and clean Chardonnay shows the flavor of the fruit itself. It was stored for over a year in 50% new French oak, so it has the buttery, vanilla, light spice, faint vanilla and smoky tones that new French oak imparts, but not so much that these flavors overpower the fruit. It primarily shows pronounced flavors of ripe apple and pear. Make sure that you don’t serve it too cold! If it’s too cold, like so many restaurants and bars serve Chardonnay, the esters (flavor compounds) won’t have a chance to evaporate and fill your nose with the natural fruit flavors they impart. If your Chardonnay is served too cold put both hands around the bowl of the glass and swirl to warm it up from your body heat. You’ll definitely notice the difference in smell and taste. Also, you’ll be able to taste the different layers of the wine as you hold it in your mouth for a few seconds. A good rule of thumb is to take Chardonnay out of the refrigerator about 20 minutes before you’re going to drink it.
