Arrow Creek 2005 Chardonnay California

It’s a passable white wine for most occasions. Sipable, if the 2nd bottle you open for the evening. It would be ok for dinner too, but don’t tax it too much.

It’s a clear, bright, pale to medium straw yellow color. There’s some tree fruit here, (apple/pear) but little in the way of aroma for your nose. It has a nice balance between sweetness, acidity and astringency. There are no off notes, and the finish is a bit short. A decent sipping wine a nice wine for dinner, if it’s not too heavy (think chicken here).
