Wily Jack Chardonnay 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Swirl and smell the aromas before you take a sip. You’ll find that the Chardonnay esters that developed during fermentation and aging are suggestive of pineapple and other tropical fruits; Granny Smith apple; citrus and sweet, aromatic spices. Then roll the wine around on your palate to hit every taste bud. All those fruits and spices reappear in the lively flavors, with zingy lemon zest and a little vanilla hanging on through the finish. Leaving the wine on the yeast during aging gave it that silky mouthfeel, along with vanilla and spice from the oak. Pair Wily Jack Chardonnay with whatever fits your mood; grilled steelhead is one of our favorites.

This is a pleasing and unpretentious wine showing fresh tropical and citrus notes joined by fragrant notes of apple and baking spices. The supple palate is laden with flavors of pineapple and bright lemon zest.
