I’ve really been enjoying the Line 39 wines recently and was bemoaning that I couldn’t find a few of their offerings here in the Atlanta area. My good friends at Line 39 took pity on me and sent me the ones I couldn’t find to try out. I didn’t waste any time breaking into the 2017 Chardonnay.
Very pale, shimmering gold with a silver hue. The nose is buttered popcorn and honeyed apples. The flavors are citrus , crisp apple, pear and faint oak. It has a really nice spicy finish that is very persistent. It’s a bit on the sweet side, but thoroughly enjoyable. I thought the flavors were actually a little better the closer it got to room temp.
This Chard would be a welcome guest at your next backyard BBQ. I give it 87 points IMHO.
