Wine of the Week: Perry Creek Winery 2009 Chardonnay


I was delighted with a beautifully-crafted, locally-produced Chardonnay this week: Perry Creek Winery’s luscious 2009 California Chardonnay was wonderfully balanced, with honeyed flavors of pear and apple and soft, background notes of pineapple and vanilla. The peachy-tropical aroma was lovely; and the wine was smooth and rich without being overly intense. This is a very drinkable wine that would pair beautifully with roast chicken, cream-based pasta dishes, baked salmon and Caesar salad.
