Emerald straw color. Toasty, creamy aromas and flavors of warm tapioca, hazelnut nougat and buttercream, and pound cake with a silky, vibrant, fruity medium body and a smooth, intriguing, medium-length clementine, kiwi custard, and delicate spice finish. A very tasty, zesty and lightly creamy chardonel.

Chardonel is a white hybrid variety, a cross between Chardonnay and Seyval, another hybrid. As the grape has excellent resistance to winter frosts, it is planted in cold climate wine territories, such as New York State and Missouri as well as Virginia.

Chardonel wines are often aged in oak to lend a creaminess as well as greater complexity. Flavors range from apple sauce to honeycomb to vanilla cream and praline. Enjoy these wines in their youth - from one to three years within the vintage date; pair with roast chicken in a cream sauce, pork with a pineapple sauce or pan-fried trout.
