Huff Estates 2007 South Bay Chardonnay - $29.95

Week two of the new year sees us wondering over to Prince Edward County to taste a delicious local Chardonnay.

The Tasting Notes: The nose is delicate with peach and pear and hints of buttered-vanilla. The fruit is very up front and in the nose, pretty impressive considering it is aged 16-months in new and used French oak. The palate is where the barrel ageing truly shows, creamy and smooth with vanilla cream, lemon curd and peach pit nuances. There’s also a nice bite on the tongue from the acidity and a wonderful lingering finish. Price: $29.95 – Rating: ****
