Bear Hug Vineyards Winemaker Select Chardonnay 2015, California

My Rating 86 Points.

Price $15.

Light golden in color.

Nice fruity nose of lemons, apples, over ripen citrus, light oak, white pepper and herbs.

Full bodied with medium acidity, creamy and soft.

Dry on the palate with grapefruits, citrus, cream, green apples, vanilla, bitter herbs, spices and white pepper.

Medium minus on the finish with bitter almonds and spices.

This California Chardonnay is well balanced, creamy and bold, with very little oak, which I liked.

I paired it with baked salmon in a spicy red sauce.

12.8% alcohol by volume.
