Sharpe Hill Vineyard American Chardonnay 2007

Member Review by MTB:

Aged in American oak for six-eight months, this is a drier wine than the Ballet of Angels. Also pale yellow in color, the nose is grassy with a pleasant mustiness from the oak. The wine has an earthiness that I haven’t found too often in Connecticut wines, they tend more towards the fruity rather than the earthy, but this wine has lovely notes of green pepper which are balanced by a slightly acidic finish. All in all a very nice wine.
