2000 SHV Chardonnay

Vintage:   Wine:

Our 2000 SHV Chardonnay strikes us as Chablis-like in its delicacy and lightness. It offers lemon and pear aromas plus a little touch of Stony Hill earthiness. It is tart, a little flinty, fresh and clean. This lovely, fruity Napa Valley Chardonnay is an incredible bargain at $15.00 a bottle. Please age this wine for six months more before serving.
