Wolffer Estates Reserve Chardonnay 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Nice nose of melon and pineapple
Crisp on the palate
Elegant finish, smooth and clean

Here's a wine from Long Island, New York. In fact, this is from one of the few wineries on the south fork with a national reputation. Most Long Island wineries are clustered along the highway to Orient Point on the pastoral north fork.

Wolffer Estates does a nice job with this Chardonnay. It's steel fermented, so no oak. When I'm in the mood for an elegant and somewhat crisp Chardonnay, this is the type of wine I reach for.

I had just one glass at a restaurant and paid $11. I think the bottle goes for around $20 in a store. Raise a glass!
