2015 Snickerdoodle Chardonnay - California
Crisp, refreshing Chardonnay is the first thing that comes to mind when most people think of white wine. Snickerdoodle makes a fresh Chardonnay, with flavors of green apple, nectarine and juicy melon. A subtle hint of oak adds complexity without cutting into the wine’s crispness, resulting in a delicious gem of a California Chardonnay.
