*a relatively new (ca. 1965) hybrid grape - a blend of Gewurztraminer and another varietal
Producer's Notes: This unoaked Chardonnay displays Fox Run Vineyard's trademark subtle melon, lemon and white nectarine aromas. In the mouth, this wine reveals its cool climate birthplace: the mouthfeel is creamy, but not leaden, due to bright acidity and moderate alcohol. Its fresh and flavor-packed, with no distracting oak flavors.
