What Are We Drinking: Smoking Loon Steelbird Unoaked Chardonnay 2018

Region: California, USA

ABV: 13.5%

Cost: $11

Pair With: lobster

Color/Appearance: translucent, pale yellow

Dry/Sweet/Body: semi sweet, silky in mouthfeel

Balance/ Acidity/Finish: Balanced in fruit flavor, light acidity; lengthy finish

Aromas: pineapple, green apple and lemon

Taste/Description: Aged in stainless steel, this wine is refreshing but silky on the palate with fruit notes of pineapple, green apple and lemon. I enjoy unoaked chardonnay because they are lighter in mouth feel versus the oak finish you get with corked chardonnays. Overall, this was a pleasant experience.
