2013 Strewn American Oak Chardonnay mini review

Slightly golden in color with a nice apple/pear nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with spot on apple/pear notes. On the medium length finish the wine is nice and dry and shows some nice vanilla notes. This is quite a good chard 88+.

From the winery’s web site (for a different year).

2015 Terroir Chardonnay American Oak $32.00 / Bottle

Presenting beautifully! A rich, complex palate with generous aromas of pineapple, green apple and pear that combine with caramel, toasty vanilla and creme brulee. Long, warm and well-balanced finish.
