From the bottle:
“Our delicious HandCraft Chardonnay is easy to enjoy with its bright citrus, peach and lush cream flavors. I’ve added a personal touch with a bit of Malvasia Bianca, an Italian grape variety, which adds lovely white floral aromas. In this way, the wines are like me, with a California home and a touch of Italian heritage. Savor a glass on its own, or pair with salads, chicken or seafood. — Cheryl Indelicato, Proprietor
The 2011 Handcraft Chardonnay begins with pleasant aromas of lemon, green apple, pear, peach and a little honeysuckle along with a hint of nutty note. Tasting reveals a fresh, fruity and refreshing wine full of citrus and pear plus secondary notes of toasty oak and vanilla cream. This medium-bodied wine is smooth with good acidity. It ends with the return of those honeysuckle notes from nose plus long lasting zesty citrus. Quite a nice wine!
