Chrysalis Vineyards Chardonnay 2009

Member Review by Jimmy Cocktail:

A clear, lemon colored wine of medium(-) intensity with legs. It has a clean, youthful nose of medium(-) intensity that has aromas of green apple and lime. It is a dry wine with medium(+) acidity, no tannins, medium alcohol and a medium(-) body. It has medium intense flavors of green apple, lime and lemon with a medium(-) length finish. It is a good mid-priced wine that is ready to drink but will not improve with time in the bottle.

This fine Chardonnay from Chrysalis is the result of winemaking techniques, a combination of both sur lies barrel and stainless steel tank fermentation, designed to express the unique Virginia terrior.
