What does Sterling Chardonnay taste like?

Answered by Roy Gibson

Sterling Chardonnay is a delightful that offers a range of aromatic and flavor profiles. When you first bring the glass to your nose, you are greeted with enticing aromas of bright golden delicious apples, Fuji apple, and Bartlett pear fruit. These fruity aromas are complemented by hints of caramel and pumpkin pie spice, which add a touch of warmth and complexity to the wine.

Moving on to the taste, Sterling Chardonnay showcases rich and ripe orchard fruit flavors. Imagine biting into a perfectly ripe apple or pear, and that is the level of fruitiness you can expect from this wine. There is also a subtle hint of lemon curd, which adds a touch of brightness and freshness to the overall flavor profile.

One of the standout characteristics of this Chardonnay is its baked spiced apple flavor. It's like enjoying a slice of warm apple pie, with all the comforting spices that come with it. This flavor adds depth and richness to the wine, making it incredibly satisfying to drink.

Despite its full-bodied nature, Sterling Chardonnay maintains a balanced acidity, which helps keep the wine focused and enhances its food pairing potential. The acidity cuts through the richness of the fruit flavors, making it a versatile choice for pairing with a variety of dishes.

I have personally enjoyed Sterling Chardonnay with roasted chicken, creamy pasta dishes, and even grilled seafood. The wine's fruitiness and hint of lemon curd complemented the savory flavors of the dishes beautifully, creating a harmonious balance on the palate.

Sterling Chardonnay is a delicious and well-rounded wine that offers a range of flavors and aromas. Whether you're a fan of fruity wines or enjoy the complexity of spice and caramel notes, this Chardonnay is sure to delight your taste buds.
