If you happen to have this vintage from Fawn Crest, don’t even try to taste this one at room temperature.  Chilled is the only way to go!  Its golden straw color is quite elegant, but you will notice some variation in color.  That’s ok because it’s been ageing a while for a white.  There are pleasant fruit aromas on the first whiff.  This is not an overly buttery Chardonnay, but it is quite crisp, with some minerality as well.  Oddly enough, there was still a slight effervescence to the taste, when we initially opened this one.  This wine could easily pair with your favorite seafood dish.  Enjoy this one when you’re really ready to enjoy it!  Just try not to wait too much longer.
