Enfield Wine Co.

Heron Lake Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

I literally gave up on domestic Chardonnay...but I love the flavor profile—Tart, juicy Granny Smith and ripe sweet pear. No discernible oak, light crisp acid/ fruit balance and ABV under 13. What a food wine! Every time I pop an Enfield, I congratulate myself on my perspicuity and good sense. It’s not hard to drink well, just ignore the big names and hype. — 4 days ago

Unoaked Chardonnay 2017

Started the day with Taittinger mimosas, finished with Iron Horse unoaked Chardonnay paired with chicken in sun-dried tomato cream sauce. This is living. This is a Chardonnay for people who think they don’t like Chardonnay. — 7 days ago

“Well, I guess I like oak”
Referred to as buttery, also full and rich but somehow light.
