A review of Bear Hug Winemaker Select Chardonnay for Weekend Wine Reviews #292.
Bear Hug Winemaker Select Chardonnay, California, Wine Insiders, $26.00. They say: A Winemaker Select bottling of Chardonnay sourced from the cool-climate region of Monterey and a small lot from the warm inland valley. This blend of styles produces a stylish and delicious Chardonnay, which has the classic flavors, but with a California twist. It tastes like: apple, ripe melon, nectarine, vanilla and toasty oak. It is best served cold, around 45-50 degrees fahrenheit. It pairs well with roast chicken, grilled veal and cream-based pastas. We say: a lot going on. Honeysuckle and peach, citrus. Lime on the finish, green apple. Excellent. We loved this wine!! Probably one of my favorite California Chardonnays!
