Wine Review: This light yellow colored unoaked Chardonnay from the Finger Lakes is a good value and nice summer wine. It opens with a ginger ale and pear like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mild mineral and lemon blend with hints of ginger and white pepper. The finish is dry and refreshing. This would be a nice Chard to bring slightly chilled to the beach. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This unoaked Chardonnay displays Fox Run Vineyard's 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. Its fresh and flavor-packed, with no distracting oak flavors. Enjoy this Chardonnay with Fox Run's Duck Pate.
