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.
