Unionville Home Vineyard Chardonnay 2013

A very pretty nose, with orange blossom and white peach. In the mouth, a sweet bright entry. This wine is of medium full body with subtle creaminess, completely mouth-filling. Bright flavors of lemon oil and lime rind give way to an extremely long finish of key lime pie. This wine is dry, not sweet, yet fruit-driven. Pair with sauteed grey sole coated in lemon zest and white pepper panko crumbs, served on a bed of wilted arugula. 
This wine will age gracefully 5-10 years gaining richness and elegance. 

 

Regarding the Unionville Home Vineyard and Mountain Road Vineyard Chardonnays: The beauty is how intensely location, soil, and slope differences affect wines. Both wines are made from the same variety of white grape: Chardonnay. However, each is produced solely from grapes harvested from one single vineyard. Unionville Home Vineyard is sloped slightly northeast; the soil is clay loam and decomposing shale. Mountain Road Vineyard has a steep south-facing slope and a calcareous gravelly soil. Taste the difference between these wines and explore the concept of terroir.
