-Chardonel- Limited Edition Wine Details
Price: $35.00 per bottle

Description: Estate bottled, this off dry Chardonel has a very fruity nose with a long, full and fruity finish with just a hint of toasty oak. This wine has very light sweetness. Aged in French and American oak for 16 months.

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.
