2011 Dolly Chardonnay

Tasting Notes

With lower acidity than the 2010, the 2011 Dolly Vineyard Chardonnay is softer and more welcoming than it’s predecessor. It’s brimming with round aromas of gala apple and still-ripening banana peel. The palate is tropical and primary, with bright flavors of mango and cantaloupe. It’s ready to drink now alongside seafood and summer salads.
