Lenn, I'd be curious about your thoughts on Finger Lakes chardonnays. Many of them tend to be more floral and less oaky then California types. The quality of the wine isn't always top-notch, but it's a style I tend to prefer as well.


My sample set of Finger Lakes chardonnay is relatively small (maybe a dozen or so wines) but yes, they seem to be more floral with crisper citrusy/green apple flavors. And much less oak. I think that is a function of ripeness...less ripe grapes just can't handle the oak the way riper stuff can.

I tend to like FL chard for easy, every day drinking. I've not had one that blew me away...but most are drinkable and affordable.

What are some of your favorite FL chards?

hey, i entered a hot dog eating contest last week it's on my blog if you want to see
