2016 Smoking Loon Steelbird Chardonnay

July 21, 2017 - Norman Bentley
#27-17-PIE

It may not be a great Chardonnay, but if you are looking for a crisp, refreshing wine for a hot summer night, it might just hit the spot. The Chardonnay Queen had pretty much the same to say, and thought it would make a good everyday Chardonnay, The Steelbird is aged in stainless steel and has a very clean finish.

The nose is decent with aromas of melon and tropical fruit. The flavor is mostly apple with some pineapple, and a slight citrus breeze toward the end. The finish is crisp and clean and does not linger. Norm's score is 87.

We enjoyed the Smoking Loon Steelbird with grilled chicken tenders, and it was quite good. However, it might be best served cold on a hot night as a "Back Porch Sipper".

price : $8 - $11

score: 87
