The 2017 Effort Chardonnay from Center of Effort Wine begins with a very pleasing aroma of lemon, honeysuckle and pear along with touches of toasty oak, butter and a hint of clove. It's a wonderful start.
The wine tastes smooth and slightly creamy but still quite vibrant. The rich fruit turns more tart in the mouth with tropical flavors in addition to the melon, lemon, lime and pear. Nicely balanced and with great depth of flavor, this is really delicious.
It ends dry with a long-lasting, mouthwatering finish. Far from a butter bomb, this is more in the Burgundian style.
