The 2018 Angeline Vineyards Reserve Chardonnay is satisfying from start to finish. This wine drinks well. Enjoy its lush fruitiness at an al fresco dinner on the patio. (Tasted: November 14, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
This Chardonnay has a delicious bouquet of ripe golden pear, tropical pineapple, and sweet honeydew melon, along with aromatic apple blossom, and creamy vanilla bean. The carefully chosen, lightly impactful French oak serves to convey a perceived sweetness that is perfectly balanced by the clean acidity around the edges of the palate. Although deceivingly full bodied, the wine maintains a juicy mouthfeel and a clean, concise finish.
