“Peach cobbler and apple pastry flavors are loaded with hazelnut and toffee accents in this plush-textured version. The buttery and well-spiced finish is luscious and creamy. Drink now through 2023. 1,075 cases made.”

Tasting Panel & Somm Journal

“Beginning with a sensational nosing of grilled pineapple and apple pie, this sumptuous Chardonnay offers rich notes of caramel, banana bread, and vanilla bean. The acidity is uplifting and keeps the wine awake in the glass. Biscuit and pine nut relay a round texture while a wedge of lime cools the palate on the finish.” August 2021

Year’s Best US Chardonnay

“I taste grilled lobster shell,” said Michael
Kowalski of Berkshire Mountain Distillery. And this wine’s richness would be delicious with grilled shellfish. It’s buttery and round, integrating some oak phenolics while still finishing clean. —Reviewed by Joshua Greene. August 2021
