2011 Vineland Estates Elevation Chardonnay

Golden in color with a nose of apples. On the mid pallet the wine displays some green apple flavors to match the nose. It’s got some minerality and some tartness on the medium length finish. It’s an unoaked chard so what you are getting is the fruit itself. This isn’t the style of chard I prefer. I like California style buttery/creamy. I would give it an 88 or so. It’s $20 a bottle.
