Pippin Hill Farm Chardonnay Reserve 2014
A Chardonnay as amazing as the view from the winery itself can sometimes be hard to find but not in the Charlottesville, Virginia area. Pippin Hill Farm is just southwest of Charlottesville and has magnificent mountain views from the winery restaurant, patio, and garden area. The perfect place to bring the family, meet with friends, or even have a wedding! If you visit Pippin Hill, you may feel like you have found Heaven on Earth. All the wines here are balanced and full of flavor and the Chardonnay Reserve is sure to be one of your favorites!
In the glass, straw gold in color but with a youthful brightness. Aroma’s of dried apricot, citrus, and oak fill the senses! Full bodied with bright acidity but rich across the palate. Flavors abound with sweet pear, ripe apricot, orange peel, and hints of honey. Youthful characteristics but very balanced and chic. On the second sip, notes of apple, fig, vanilla oak, and finishes with an elegant toasty brioche character. Graceful personality and is nicely polished and refreshing!
This wine brings out the best in what a Virginia Chardonnay can be and what most California Chardonnay’s strive for. A lovely food wine that would pair well with grilled chicken, seared sea scallops, oysters, pasta with an Alfredo sauce, Caesar Salad, and medium to strong cheeses. 92 points! Enjoy now through 2018. Average of $24 a bottle. For more information, check out www.pippinhillfarm.com. WineSplashing!!
