Henry of Pelham Estate Winery Estate Chardonnay 2012
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: September 11, July 26, September 12 and March 7.
This full-bodied white wine very balanced and well-rounded without being heavy. Lovely green apple notes with some toasted hazelnut on the finish from the barrel fermentation and aging. There's fresh baked broad sprinkled with some cinnamon notes on the finish. Lovely! Chardonnay food pairings: grilled salmon, crab and lobster, wild fowl or turkey, dishes with cream sauces or mild herb flavours, brie-type cheese.

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|Estate grown and fermented in oak this round, mouth-filling yet fresh wine is the epitome of Short Hills Bench Chardonnay. Will be released in Vintages May 2013.|
