Paumanok Festival Chardonnay 2015
|Appellation||North Fork of Long Island|
Wine EnthusiastDelightfully fresh and floral, this wine spotlights pristine mango and pineapple flavors. It's exuberantly fruity and forward yet crisply balanced, finishing long on a salty sea-spray note.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Festival Chardonnay is unoaked and comes in at 12% alcohol. Easy and straightforward, this still has a clean, fresh feel and reasonable concentration for the level. It finishes with some crispness and just a touch of steel and stones. Overall, this is nicely done for the value end, a good party wine, porch-sipper or aperitif. It will pair well with lighter seafood dishes, but it won't hold up to stronger foods.
Wine Spectator Enticing creamed yellow apple and pear fruit notes mingle nicely, lined with a subtle salted butter note that keeps things on the fresher side. Nicely done. Drink now. 721 cases made.
