Gold color. Fruity, elegant aromas of lemon balm, polished tile, slate, and underripe mango with a velvety, lively, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a complex, medium-long green olive, underripe peach and nutmeg, toasted brazil nut, and resin and white pepper finish with silky, fruit tannins. A lengthy, weighty, and precise Chardonel for gourmet pairing.

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.
