Excelsior Chardonnay 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

86 points Wine Enthusiast: Fresh but creamy with layers of orange blossom, toast and citrus, this Chardonnay offers a vibrant, multifaceted character at a very reasonable price. Minerality lifts the fruit and gives the white a food pairing advantage. A Best Buy. (Sep 2009)

Elegant and approachable, this Chardonnay has appealing lemon and lime flavors, with hints of vanilla. Delicate peach nuances linger on the crisp, dry finish.

A medium-bodied Chardonnay with a pale golden color, fruity aromas, and floral honey notes to round out the apple and lemon-lime flavors. With its creamy texture, this would be perfect with a dish like shrimp étouffée.
