2009 Hunt Country Vineyards Chardonnay

We're always on the lookout for a good Chardonnay--oaked or not! They pair very well with a boat-load of dishes! What we find most of the time is way too much oak or way too much fruit.

This Chardonnay from Hunt Wines smelled awesome from the glass, although it's pineapple, pear and citrus aromas led us to believe it was going to be another fruit bomb. Never safe to assume, these lovely fruit flavors were accompanied by grassy notes and a touch of vanilla/oak! It had great mouthfeel--very rounded and creamy along with some good acidity for balance. Great stuff, and for being only about $12, it's Awesome stuff!
