It’s back to the States and the many, many, many wonderful wines made here. I’m settling back in with a local favorite, a ringing-in-spring Chardonnay from Millbrook Winery. Millbrook has been named the Best Hudson Valley Winery for some 20 years. The Chardonnay is made from estate-grown fruit and undergoes partial barrel fermentation and complete malolactic fermentation. On the nose are aromas of clementine, tangerine, custard and toasted almond; on the palate, the soft, silky wine reveals notes of honeycrisp apple and caramel with a round finish.
