Wine of the Week - Bella Cavalli 2009 Chardonnay


bella09chard

I know it seems redundant to point out the white grape flavors on a white wine, but it's worth noting here.  Most California whites have citrus and pomaceous flavors.  Here's a white wine that actually tastes like the white grapes it was produced from.

On the nose are notes of apple and pear, but mostly those white grapes.  The white grape carries over to the tongue, with a nice balance of tart and acid.  Finishes with a bit of maple syrup.

This is a light, tasty, standout wine from Bella Cavalli Farms.  Highly recommended!

14.3% alcohol
