From the Winery:
"We love Chardonnay! Often we crave a pure, clean style that celebrates the fruit of our region and is very versatile at the table. Our 2013 Scuttlehole Chardonnay certainly fits the bill. This is a captivating and salivatingly delicious 100% Chardonnay. This wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks with no malo-lactic fermentation resulting in a dry wine with flavors and aromas of minerals, apples, pears, citrus fruit and lemon curd. This fresh, unoaked wine is medium-bodied with balanced acidity and alcohol. The wine is wonderfully juicy with the textural interplay of both linearity and roundness that provides great pleasure and interest. There is a creaminess that is unmistakably Chardonnay. As always the fruit for this wine was hand-picked, whole cluster-pressed, handled minimally and bottled by gravity. The Chardonnay (from the classic Dijon clones) was harvested from vineyards on both the North and South forks, thus the Long Island AVA. Our Scuttlehole Chardonnay continues to be a favorite restaurant by the glass pour due to its unbelievable versatility in food pairing and our 2013 Scuttlehole Chardonnay continues the tradition of boundless pairing potential at the table. Comfortable with either complimentary or contrasting flavors, try this wine with crisp, briny shellfish or oily bluefish and wild salmon; fresh cheeses, a citrus roast chicken or a fresh salad with duck confit. We encourage you to experiment with our Scuttlehole Chardonnay as it is so adaptable, versatile and delicious. Drink now through the next 1-3 years. 1208 cases produced."
