Linden Hardscrabble, Chardonnay
Virginia's Best Wine Pack Wine
Virginia, 750 ml, 2016
From the Hardscrabble Vineyard on top of the Blue Ridge at 1,300 to 1,400 feet with an eastern to southern slope. Deep, well-drained, rocky, mineral soils give depth, structure and length. This is a ripe expression of Hardscrabble Chardonnay. Aromas of ripe pear and grilled peach with vanilla toast and nutmeg. The palate starts assertively with a lush, creamy texture. This vintage shows more volume than verve on the finish.
