Angels Gate 2005 Emerald Shore Chardonnay - $15.95

There aren’t many really good semi-sweet Chardonnays out there, but Angels Gate has made a delightful stab at it. Blending the standard Chardonnay with the more aromatic Chardonnay Musque they end up with this semi-sweet sipper (or off-dry if you prefer). A nose of floral, peach, lime, pineapple and mango is followed by the cockle-warming taste of white peach and pineapple on a short finish. Quite enjoyable and tasty …what a treat when out on the patio these (hopefully) warm late-summer, early-autumn, days. Makes a great alternative to straight dry-Chardonnay, or even your typical Riesling. Their website proclaims "devilishly good wine" - with this one I would agree. Available at the winery only.
