Vintages Wine Picks September 12, 2009

White Wine

Hidden Bench Winery Chardonnay 2007, V.Q.A., Beamsville Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Vintages Wine Panel: Hidden Bench is an artisanal winery guided by a non-interventionist and terroir-driven philosophy. Their wines are made exclusively with estate-grown fruit. This yellow-gold Chardonnay expresses aromas of melon, yellow plum, grapefruit and sweet pear, with coconut and smoke accents. Dry, toasty and concentrated with abundant crisp fruit flavors and a subtle mineral streak. The wine is full-bodied with a lingering, balanced finish. My note: Hazelnut-buttery goodness! Lovely, lovely, lovely. The ultimate comfort wine; rich, full-bodied and embracing. 68817 14.30% XD 750 mL  $35.20 Score: 91/100. September 12, 2009 Favorite White Wine.
