Hartenberg Chardonnay 2017
With an open-knit nose, the 2017 Chardonnay wafts from the glass with yellow apple skin and Bosc pear, with a focus on citrus and with elements of brown baking spices sprinkled throughout the nose. Subtle oak flavors flutter on the palate with soft tones of crème brûlée and a balanced core of fruit with supporting acidity. Medium-bodied, the wine has commercial appeal and is a good buy for the price. It ends with a soft, lingering finish with subtle cinnamon nutmeg spices.
