The palette offers satisfying flavors of tart citrus, granny smith apple, and herb. The wine’s finish goes on and on. This chardonnay is not your typical “heavily oaked butter bomb”, but is truly a delightful wine and a terrific bargain for the price.

I am really impressed with this chardonnay. Aromas of citrus, melon, oak and floral notes permeate the nose of this wine. The palette is dry with high acidity and medium alcohol, yet naturally balanced. Pronounced flavors of tart citrus, sour apple and the faintest presence of tropical fruit provide for a wonderfully long finish. This chardonnay is unassuming and definitely not your typical heavily oaked, follow the mass marketing leader, wine. Five Rivers is a great accompaniment to oysters on the half shell or Penn Cove mussels. Cheers!
