Barry Family Cellars Chardonnay 2016: $16 Good+

The Barry Family Cellars Chardonnay (Finger Lakes, NY) 2016 $16 [Good+] is a pretty wine with lightweight flavors.  It is unoaked.  Sip it, or serve with salads or other light foods.

Pale lemon in color, lilting aromas of candied green apple, melon, a waxy note, white pepper, and mineral have some charm.  Medium bodied, dry, with a light and delicate mouth feel, balance is good.  Flavors of candied green apple, melon, a slight waxy note and peppery mineral are not very forceful but do have some allure.  Flavor fades quickly in the spicy finish.  March 2017
