2011 Chardonnay - Avonlea Vineyard 750ml


Our 2011 Chardonnay is a rich wine on a lean lithe frame, with subdued oak influence.  The color is luminous greenish-gold straw with a nose of sweet yellow apple, ripe pear, with hints of pineapple and vanilla custard.  The palate is rich, yet elegant and creamy, with golden delicious apple, buttery lemon curd, mineral, a touch of vanilla with subtle hazelnut followed by a lingering crisp dry finish.  The wine drinks well now, but will develop more complexity with proper cellaring over the next five years or so.

Harvested October 12-25, Alcohol 13.5%, Total Acid .82 grams per 100 ml, pH 3.26, 144 cases produced plus 12 Magnums.  

Table Suggestions:  This flavorful wine pairs well with classic Burgundian cream or butter sauces, lobster and other sweet shellfish, and grilled poultry.  Its elegance and complexity make it a good choice for enjoying with just simple cheeses, good French bread, and butter.   

Winemaker’s Comments:   The use of less new oak gives the wine a more elegant quality and allows the fruit to shine in the front palate without covering the complex nuances in the mid-palate and finish.  The wine is classic Wyncroft.
