The 2016 vintage of Patland Chardonnay is a beautiful example of a successful marriage between wine and oak barrel. On the nose, the wine hints at tree bark, camp fire and cocoa shavings, while at the same time showing off aromas of baked apple and lemon merengue. On the palate, a touch of acid turns that baked apple into tart ripe apple. Along with flavors of light brown sugar and a nutty, sherry characteristic, this wine finishes round and rich. We recommend pairing it with anything from baked brie to broiled lobster.
