Hickory Hollow Wine Cellars 2016 Chardonnay
Golden Delicious apple dominates a nose that also shows hints of sweet vanilla, baking spice, white pepper and a squirt of lemon-lime juice.
Medium bodied, the palate is a bit more tropical with some pineapple flavor joining the sweet apples ones. Creamy mid-palate with nice, gritty pear acidity on the finish. Not super concentrated, but by no means dilute.
This is a well-priced, food-friendly chardonnay that should appeal to a wide range of chardonnay fans.
