Pear, sweet toasty oak and citrus hints on the nose. Medium-full bodied, the texture is somewhat creamy with nicely balanced flavors of pear, toasty marshmallows and oak nuance. I would have liked perhaps a touch more acidity, but this is an extremely stylish Chardonnay that certainly carries on Sherwood House’s white Burgundy tradition.

From my very first taste of their richly Burgundian 2001 Chardonnay last summer, I’ve been a Sherwood House Vineyards enthusiast. Owners Charles and Barbara Smithen, along with winemaker Gilles Martin (of Martha Clara Vineyards), share a devotion to graceful, Old World-style wines that really comes through in the bottle. And, it doesn't get more bucolic and rustic than their tiny little tasting room hidden amongst their vines.Sherwood House 2002 Chardonnay ($20) is a striking light gold in the glass. The nose is a bit less intense than the 2001 but features similar aromas that are slightly fruitier — pear, sweet toasty oak and citrus.Medium-to-full bodied, the texture is somewhat creamy with nicely balanced flavors of pear, toasty marshmallows and oak nuance. A touch more acidity would push this wine even further, but this is an extremely stylish Chardonnay that certainly carries on Sherwood House’s white Burgundy tradition. Lobster seems the ideal accompaniment.
