Chardonel Dry Stainless

Chardonel (Dry Stainless) Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: This Chardonel Dry wine was aged 9 months in stainless steel. It is fresh, fruity with pear and lemon flavors, long finish and goes great with shellfish, oysters and smoked salmon.

Varietal Definition
Chardonel was developed in New York State, to be a late-ripening, highly-productive, cold-climate varietal. A cross of Chardonnay and Seyval Blanc, Chardonel is proving its value in the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest states. Given much of the same treatment as Chardonnay, it adapts well to barrel fermention, and controlled lees contact. The result is often a full-bodied dry wine, high in alcohol and acidity, with a similar, if less pronounced character than Chardonnay.
