2009 Pelter Winery “Unoaked” Chardonnay

Soft, clean, and in good balance, this would pair nicely with trout almondine. The nose leads with apples and tangerines. Soft baked apples  lead on the palate, tangerines follow on the mid-palate. Half the grapes were whole bunch pressed and there was no malolactic fermentation. Recommended. 89 points.
