Wine of the Week: Perry Creek Chardonnay


I stumbled across an elegant and enticing locally-crafted wine this week: Perry Creek’s 2008 Chardonnay. This lush, tropical Chardonnay still has a nice crispness, which makes it a good partner with food. I loved the wine’s toast- and vanilla-kissed flavors of apple, pineapple and melon, with a judicious, creamy oak overlay and a lovely pear-citrus-vanilla aroma. I would relish this wine with a wide array of dishes, from Fettuccini Alfredo and smoked salmon to roast pork and brie cheese with a crusty baguette.
