The '14 CrossBarn Chardonnay looks golden in the glass and smells nice and ripe. Peaches, pineapples and lemons burst forth like so much fruit basket. The palate shines as brightly, with wonderful fruit led by apples and lemons. The creamy quality resulting from malolactic fermentation and aging sur-lie stands opposite an eye-popping acidity. Pair this with salads, soups and seafood anytime, but it can handle a pork chop or roasted chicken just as effortlessly. Aging, btw, is 90% steel. As full and rich in the mouth as this is, I never would have guessed that.

Lemon and acidic up front ( more than I normally would taste in a Chardonnay) with a lovely creamy smooth finish. Different and I will purchase again.

Nose of popcorn right off the bat! Not a huge popcorn fan, but this is a great balance of butter, cream, lemon, and melon. Big fan and great value!

Clear and clean deep straw yellow. Aromas of stone and citrus fruits. Palate was Smooth with Apple, Peach and ripe Pear. The wine shows some depth, good balance and acidity, and finishes with mineral tones.
