I truly am a Chardonnay kind of gal. No chance of me being a member of the ABC club. Anything BUT Chardonnay especially when I get a taste of this stunning wine. My wine pick was brought to me by a good friend and fellow wine lover.
From the county, Prince Edward County, this 2013 Norman Hardie County Chardonnay Unfiltered was a knockout. What can I say… not inexpensive, but worth the $39.00 dollars.
The Chardonnay came from 5 different sites, all very close to the winery, with the idea of blending to create a richness, complexity from the various terroir. It reminded me of a great Burgundy but at a bargain price. So alluring on the nose, I love that toasty brioche aroma and then it had a mouth watering beautiful citrus flavor with a hint of mineral… really yummy!
