2009 Vineland Estates Chardonnay Musque

This wine came to us from the Vineland wine of the month club. The wine is pale in color with a nose of candied fruits. On the mid pallet the wine is sweet with some apricots and honeysuckle coming through. The wine is on the lighter side of medium in length and the sweetness does not live on overly long. According to the write up that came with the wine it is 15% alcohol and LCBO sugar code 2. It definitely is sweet. It has an almost Riesling like flavor. As a Riesling I would say it’s about a Spatlese in flavor. We paired the wine with a pan fried snapper with a chili pepper on it and it went reasonably well. I would give this wine an 87-88. Not entirely to my tastes but not undrinkable either. At the winery this sells for $18.20 and for my money I’d be looking elsewhere.
