Alba Chardonnay New Jersey 2005

Member Review by MTB:

The Chardonnay is initially oaked in a combination of French and American barrels and then moved to stainless steel for finishing. The result is a light-bodied wine which has a very light nose with notes of green apple and grass. In the mouth, the wine is clean, with crisp notes of apple and just a hint of citrus. The oak is subtle, providing a touch of vanilla that smooths out the wine for a satisfying finish.
