Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Chardonnay opens with a fragrant ginger and pear bouquet with hints of lemon and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced and bright for a Chard. The flavor profile is a Bosc pear and vanilla blend with notes of lime and green tea. I also detected hints of banana, white pepper, and touch of clementine. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity are nicely prolonged. I would pair this versatile Chard with linguini with a clam sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Named after the one hundred fifty-year-old "cross barn" located on the Hobbs family farm in upstate New York. This wine is clean, crisp, and has refreshing fresh fruit structure with mineral highlights. It is a bright Chardonnay bursting with aromas of crisp green apple, white peach, and a touch of citrus blossom. With notes of fresh pear, kumquat, and lime zest, the palate is charged by an electric minerality and brisk acidity that blends seamlessly through to a vibrant finish. Perfect for a wide range of foods or enjoyed on its own. 100% stainless steel.
