Barnstormer Chardonnay 2015: $17 Good+

The Barnstormer Chardonnay (Finger Lakes, NY) 2015 $17 [Good+] is a simple easy-drinking wine with good flavors.  For snacking, try goat cheese, which rounds off some of its rougher edges.  Simple baked chicken would be a good dinner dish.

Pale lemon in color, the aromas feature light sappy apple and pear, with dashes of lemon and chalky mineral.  Medium bodied, dry, with snappy acidity, balance is good.  Simple moderately intense flavors of sappy apple and pear, with dashes of lemon, orange marmalade and peppery mineral are pleasant.  The finish is a bit peppery/spicy with good length.  November 2016
