Another one from the Profile Group portfolio tasting, in fact my favorite of the night. Slightly golden in color with a lovely varietal chard nose with lots of apple and pear coming through. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with lovely rich apple and pear. On the medium length finish the wine’s elegance and complexity comes through. This not a over oaked chard but instead is rich and full bodied with lovely acidity. I would give this a solid 90. Available in cases of 6 for $63.95 a bottle.
from the winery’s web site:
Full-bodied and lush, yet never heavy, our Wild Yeast Chardonnay shows off flavors of ripe pear and melon with butterscotch and hazelnut notes balanced by oak spice and bright acidity. This is a wildly expressive wine that will reward a few years of patient cellaring, but can be enjoyed today, as well. The grapes are fermented using only indigenous or “wild” yeast cultures found on the skins of the grapes themselves, in the vineyards and within the walls of our winery.
