Our rich, bright Duck Shack Chardonnay from the Oakville region of the Napa Valley is meant to be shared. Savor the layers of apples and pears with a hint of nutty complexity in this wine.

From coast to coast mudflats to marshlands…flyways to byways. The duck shack is an American tradition dating back to the early settlers. A place where families bond, friends come together and memories are made. Duck Shack Wines are the perfect complement to memorable gatherings at the duck shack, or any special place where families and friends come together to share treasured memories over a fine meal with great wine. The 2006 Duck Shack Cabernet taste is rich, complex dark fruit layered with blackberries, dark cherry and plum with hints of toasted oak and has a rich, long finish. While the 2007 Duck Shack Chardonnay is a rich, bright Chardonnay with layers of apples and pears. The nutty complexity is nicely balanced with the crisp finish. Read less

A touch of vanilla on the nose but this is driven by lime, apricot, and pineapple fruit tones that seem fresh and bright. Zesty acid on entry is followed by cool, crisp flavors of green fruits, pineapple and peach with creamy vanilla undertones and light wood spice notes. The texture is lovely and shows excellent integration. This is refreshing yet doesn’t lack power or richness and finishes with an absolute flourish of lime, starfruit, and peach fruit salad notes with even a hint of blueberry. Delicious 92pts

Melon with a bit of lemon on the nose. Hints of oak, citrus. Nice wine. Nothing special.

I like this wine a lot, it brings out a lot of great citrus and smokey flavors without being too overpowering.

Lots of apricots on the nose. Creamy and zesty with good balance and a long prickly finish.

From the Beverage Testing Institute World Wine Championships: 86 Points. Silver Medal. Golden yellow color. Toasted nut, baked apple, and lemon balm aromas follow through on a soft, round entry to a dryish medium body with green pineapple, lime rind and mineral notes. Finishes with a crisp, tart mealy apple fade. (tasted on Mar-02-2009)
