Galluccio Family Wineries Chardonnay North Fork Cru George Allaire 2003

Member Review by LENNDEVOURS:

Fresh and food friendly. The taster's nose is greeted with ripe pear aromas accented by lemons, just a little sweet spice and a minty-floral end note. The palate isn't as complex as the nose, but it's no less pleasing. Medium bodied, crisp apple and pear flavors are heightened by fresh, citrusy acidity. The balance is nice here.And, as the wine warms in the glass, pineapple aromas and flavors step to the forefront — a delicious reminder that one shouldn't over-chill white wine.

When Vincent Galluccio took over Gristina Vineyards in 2000, it would have been easy to eliminate the Gristina name completely. But, with an eye towards the tradition Jerry Gristina had built upon since founding the vineyard in 1984, and a reverence for the past, many Galluccio-produced wines still bear the “Gristina” name and label. For the most part, these are the winery's everyday wines.The most interesting wines in the portfolio are labeled “Galluccio,” with two further labeled <I>Cru George Allaire</i> — named for Mr. Galluccio's father in law.Despite fermentation in French oak and 14 months of barrel aging, this Chardonnay remains fresh and food friendly. The taster's nose is greeted with ripe pear aromas accented by lemons, just a little sweet spice and a minty-floral end note. The palate isn't as complex as the nose, but it's no less pleasing. Medium bodied, crisp apple and pear flavors are heightened by fresh, citrusy acidity. The balance is nice here.And, as the wine warms in the glass, pineapple aromas and flavors step to the forefront — a delicious reminder that one shouldn't over-chill white wine.
