Weis Chardonnay 2015: $20 Good+

The Weis Vineyards Chardonnay (Finger Lakes, NY) $20 [Good+] is a creamy wine, with vanilla spice flavors and a soft and silky mouth feel.  Balance is an issue here, as peppery acidity detracts from its charms.

Medium lemon yellow in color, the aromas suggest spicy vanilla pudding, with notes of wax, vanilla, spice and white pepper easily matching scents of apple and stone fruit.  Medium bodied, dry, soft and silky, with peppery acidity that sticks out, balance is OK.  Flavors of ripe apple and stone fruit have substance and are matched by notes of cream, vanilla, and spice.  Flavors fall off quickly in the spicy and peppery finish.  Waxy and vanilla notes linger.  August 2017
