Recommended Buy, Reverse Wine Snob, Leese-Fitch 2013 Chardonnay
The Leese-Fitch Chardonnay begins with pleasant aromas of apple, citrus and tangerine.
Smooth and tasty in the mouth, this is a non-buttery Chardonnay that focuses on the rich fruit. And there is lots of that — apple, pear, tangerine, lemon, lime and tropical fruit are all represented. With a touch of honeyed sweetness as well this wine has a pretty wide range of pairing possibilities including spicy foods. It ends with more rich fruit that lingers for a good long while. It’s hard to imagine anyone not liking this solid example of a California Chardonnay.
