Smoking Loon Steelbird Unoaked Chardonnay 2016

Smoking Loon Steelbird Unoaked Chardonnay 2016

SKU 41236


Our 2015 Smoking Loon "Steelbird" Chardonnay represents the true characteristics of Chardonnay, free from the influence of oak aging. 100% stainless steel aging allows vibrant aromas of pineapple, melon, pear and golden delicious apple to shine through. Refreshing yet rich flavors of pineapple, melon and apple are rounded out by a pleasant citrus acidity. With a creamy, silky mouthfeel--obtained by re-suspending the lees during tank aging--and persistent finish, our unoaked Chardonnay is in a league of its own. A lively palate and tropical finish make this a versatile food-pairing wine. Serve with light appetizers, seafood, grilled vegetables and spicy Mexican or Indian dishes.

Wine Enthusiast"Best Buy" Crisp and tangy, this smells citrusy and tastes like green apples and light herbs. It feels lively, has good balance and a refreshing finish.
