Finger Lakes - New York State
Grape Variety - 100% Chardonnay (unoaked)
Alcohol - 12.5% abv
Wine Details - Fox Run have been making Chardonnay in the racy, zesty unoaked style since 1990. Stainless steel aged Chardonnays have gained a great deal of attention in recent years because of their inherent food friendliness and mouthwatering, juicy flavors. Doyle Family Vineyard is located on the east side of the Seneca Lake - one of the oldest Chardonnay plantings in New York State. Cool climate, unoaked Chardonnay at it's best. Delicate, elegant white wines at their best.
Tasting Note - This unoaked Chardonnay displays Fox Run Vineyards’ trademark subtle melon, lemon and white nectarine aromas. In the mouth, this wine reveals its cool climate birthplace: the mouthfeel is creamy, but not leaden, due to bright acidity and moderate alcohol. It’s fresh and flavor-packed, with no distracting oak flavors.
What the Experts Say - Best Buy Wine Enthusiast
"Unoaked and blended with 9% Traminette, this blossomy, unusually aromatic Chardonnay highlights ripe apricot and tangerine flavors. Fresh, lemony acidity lends vitality against a midpalate that's rich, luscious and fruity" ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA
