Golden straw color. Aromas and flavors of pineapple glaze, sweet yellow corn, toasted apple cake, and lemon candies with a satiny, vibrant, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, appealing, medium-length finish displaying nuances of ginger and banana with a suggestion of oak flavor. A bright and full-bodied Chardonel with big fruity character and easy pairability.

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.
