I am reporting this week on yet another good deal for all. This wine is rated at 90/100 points by Wine Enthusiast magazine and is sold at Chalet Party Shoppe for $19.99 a bottle.
The wine is produced by Landmark Vineyards which is located in the foothills of Mayacamas Mountains in the Sonoma Valley. The winery was founded in 1974 and has been producing premium Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs ever since.
The wine is 100% Chardonnay. Grapes for the 2015 Overlook Chardonnay came from 24 separate premium vineyards in Sonoma County. This wine was fermented for 10 months in small French oak barrels (25% new) which provide a hint of toasty oak on the nose.
On the nose there are hints of lemon and green apples with oak. On the palate I tasted fruit, lemon and oranges. The wine is textured and has a lingering finish which is crisp and refreshing. This wine has a 14.2% alcohol level.
The wine would pair well with greens, salads, white meats and fish. This is a good wine for tasting on most occasions.
Ask for this wine at your local wine shop. If you are in the Elkhart area it is available at most Belmont or Chalet shops.
