Producer: Breaux Vineyards
Virginia Pour House Notes:
Aroma: very aromatic with light floral notes with a tropical fruit explosion
Flavors: ripe tropical fruits bursting on the palate adding notes of light pear and mango
Finish: soft, smooth, and refreshing with a lingering mango flavor
Additional Notes: The latest craze is unoaked Chardonnay. For those unfamiliar with the term, it simply means there is no oak influence with stainless steel fermentation. This allows the fruit of the wine to shine without that heavy stereotypical California Chard super, buttery quality looming over the nose and taste buds. Most unoaked Chards carry a very crisp and clean finish; light bodied, and packed with citrus flavors. The surprising thing about Breaux’s rendition is that this wine maintains the same body structure as it’s oaked counterpart, minus the buttery aroma and flavors. The fruit is explosive across the nose and palate. The finish is very soft and smooth but maintains a refreshing quality. I LOVE this wine and was able to enjoy it while on vacation at the beach this past 4th of July. There was honestly no better pairing.
