The folks at Peconic Bay Winery get into the spirit of things with the generous donation of two different cases of their award-winning wine. This lot is for a case of their 2007 Chardonnay, retail value $264.00.
Lot 46 – Peconic Bay Cabernet Sauvignon
Reminiscent of ripe Chassagne Montrachet or even Russian River. The 2007 Peconic Bay La Barrique Chardonnay delivers mineralities, citrus and hints of tropical notes with hazlenut and toast playing a lesser role. Creamy without being cloying, the wine truly offers a high level of varietal correctness and true perfection for the chardonnay lover.
This wine is the result of creative clonal blending of ripe, healthy grapes from an excellent vintage. This produced a broadly complex and aromatic profile coupled with soft and creamy mouth-feel. Weekly yeast stirring during the four month exposure to new French Oak insured the viscosity. It’s fruit sweet nature belies the fact that this wine is bone dry. La Barrique is a true classic showing just the most subtle kiss of oak and the long flabors that are the hallmark of such wines.
Opening bid is $10.00. Minimum bid increment $10.00.
[How it works- Each auction lot will get its own post. As soon as it gets its own post, the auction is live. Once a bit of time has passed, and people really know about Wine for Haiti, lots will go live AND HOT. Every item will got “hot” if bidding reaches retail value. Once hot, each lot is on a 24-hour cycle, ending at 10:00 p.m. Eastern Time. If a lot goes a full 24 hours, from 10:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., without a new bid, the last bid in the comments wins. If we get into a bidding war, with the same people going back and forth, one day at a time, we will post something in the comments of that Auction Lot and schedule a time to bid to the death, at a time mutually agreeable to everybody involved.]
