Unionville Vineyards 2012 Pheasant Hill Chardonnay

052214fThis estate wine is from Unionville’s Pheasant Hill Vineyards. These vineyards are in America’s Colonial Crescent area of New Jersey. The 18 year-old vines are planted in granite and limestone soil.

The wine was fermented and aged for six months in neutral French oak barrels. The yellow colored Chardonnay offered citrus on the aroma. There were hints of lemon and orange blossoms. The citrus carries into the taste with added layers of melon, kiwi and nuts. The finish was crisp. There was a subtle influence of oak. For those that do not want to taste oak but would rather taste the grape, this is a good selection. Retail price is $51.95 and is available at Unionville Winery in Ringoes, New Jersey and online.

Chardonnay is one of the best varietal wines to cook with. We added a little to our rice and pairing it with barbecued chicken and vegetables.
