Unionville Vineyards, Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2010, Pheasant Hill Block 1A – Rows 1-12, New Jersey
Tasting Note: An aged, fulsome chardonnay that gives you all the concentrated gold-fruit notes that reward those with the patience to buy and hold.
Medium-intensity gold in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of golden apple, candied pear, caramel, brioche and honeysuckle.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied chardonnay has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose along with nectarine stonefruit and blossom supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with a long finish.
A full, generous, complex midpalate reveals gorgeous fruit, toasted almond and a pleasing autolytic character.
