Unionville Vineyards, Pheasant Hill Chardonnay 2012, Pheasant Hill Block 1A, Rows 1-32, New Jersey
Tasting Note: An aged chardonnay with umph, texture, character and a complex midpalate.
Medium-intensity gold in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of brioche, walnut and baked red apple with hints of vanilla.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied chardonnay has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose along with notes of white nectarine supported by medium acidity and completing with a medium-plus finish.
The oak is light and well-integrated.
The wine can be enjoyed now but has aging potential.
