Yellow straw color. Fruity aromas of carrot cake with coconut frosting and cinnamon dusted heirloom apples with a satiny, tart, dryish light body and a tingling, brisk lemon supremes and cream soda finish with a suggestion of oak flavor. A tart little number for midwestern summer heat.

Chardonel

Serve in a White Wine Glass
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.
