Chardonel Wine Details

Description: Our Chardonel has a nice balance between it's pear and apple aromas and light oak to create a full-bodied dry white wine. It is very easy to pair with light and fresh foods and leaves your pallett filled with a nice fruit finish. Made from 100% Chardonel grapes and is a 2009 vintage. We hope you enjoy!

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.
