Handley 2005 Chardonnay Dry Creek Vineyard

The Handley Cellars 2005 Chardonnay is an elegant wine with nicely balanced flavors representing the bright fruit flavors of their Dry Creek Valley vineyard. This 2005 vintage is light yellow in color and opens with a refreshingly crispy granny smith apple bouquet with hints of peaches, oranges, pears, and roasted nuts. On the palate, this round and full-bodied Chardonnay is extremely well balanced, creamy, and soft textured with buoyant flavors of vanilla, pear, melon and toasty oak with hints of spice. [+]
