From the bottle:
"The Famiglia Meschini Premium Line is the accomplishment of our dream to bring the true characteristics of each varietal to your glass. From the vineyard to the bottle we limit our intervention so that all the aromas and senses come to life as you unleash these young and lively wines.
Our 2010 Premium Unoaked Chardonnay is perfectly balanced and presents hints of tropical fruit. Welcome this unaltered and unbelievable Chardonnay into your wine experience.
This wine was a late addition to the Showdown, but one I'm glad we were able to include. The 2010 Famiglia Meschini Premium Unoaked Chardonnay exhibits aromas of melon, pear, and orange. The wine tastes of citrus and tropical fruit with a little white pepper. It has a great, sweet finish with lemon and orange zest that lingers almost like a sweet dessert wine. This wine is very easy to drink and could be very easy to consume quickly! A great choice for a hot summer day!
