Vinted and Bottled by Kenwood Vineyards
The 2018 Kenwood Vineyards Chardonnay begins with a pleasing aroma of pear, a little tropical fruit, melon and a hint of freshly buttered corn on the cob.
The wine tastes clean and crisp with just a bit of butter and toastiness to it. Featuring good acidity, a smooth mouthfeel and similar flavors to the nose with a little vanilla lemon cream in the mouth, this is easy to drink.
It ends with a dry, tangy finish. Overall this is pretty pleasing Chard at this low price with a nice balance between the fruit and buttery notes.
