An Impressive Chardonnay Grown in Zipcode 75209

chalk1by Andrew Chalk

Inwood Estates Vineyards just released their 2012 ‘City of Dallas’ Chardonnay ($49.50) made from grapes grown in a vineyard just a few hundred yards from the junction of Inwood Road and Lovers Lane in Dallas. ‘A vineyard in the heart of the city’ you say? Indeed, and growing a noble white grape as well. This is no gimmick-wine. It stands toe-to-toe with similarly-priced Chardonnay from California and is made in a New World style. The nose is a medium intensity presentation of tropical fruit (especially mango) and peaches, the mouthfeel has a cream soda creaminess and softness reflecting the malolactic fermentation that the wine went through.

It is ideal as a quaffing wine or with fish, poultry or pork dishes. This might also become the cool present to give this season. I bet Neiman Marcus wish that they had it in their catalog. Very few cases are available so order now, either online or by calling the winery at (214) 902-9452.

    Might be pretty tough to get $50 for a Texas white.

  2. And i base that on the fact that I was told at Saturday’s event that the 100% Palomino is sold out at $139.50 and that the Palomino-Chardonnay is almost sold out at $79.50.
