WTN: Time for a Knapp

Postby Carl Eppig » Tue Dec 20, 2011 10:02 pm

2010 Knapp, Finger Lakes, Chardonnay $11.95. Alcohol level: 12%. Non-oak fermentation makes this Chardonnay a clean, crisp, refreshing, and uncomplicated dry white wine with light citrus notes.

We matched it with Roast Chicken, rice, and peas. Mmmmm good!

Glad to see that Knapp is doing a sans-oak Chardonnay; these seem so much more appropriate for the type of fruit one gets in the Finger Lakes. If you like the Knapp version, you might check out the similarly priced bottles from Anthony Road and Red Tail Ridge. Good daily drinkers.

Carl: you have posted previous notes as well , in favor of Knapp Chards..Bearing that in mind,we were out and about wine tasting on Cayuga and Seneca Lakes during the Labor Day weekend with our daughters.. I bought a bottle of the 2010 Knapp Chard..Haven't opened it yet but plan to do so in near fututre, My wife often pairs a roasted chicken with brown rice and green beans.

Our tastes seem to be similiar Jon. I hope you enjoy. We're look forward to trying those that Joe recommended as well.

Merry Christmas, Carl

Merry Christmas to you as well, Carl..Joe Moryl has been my guru and guide to the Finger Lakes for many years, going back to when my wife and I took our very first FL tasting trip and made the rounds of Seneca Lake, roughly 10-15 years(possibly longer, wd need to check my cellar book) and 3 computers ago..Joe was kind enough to provide detailed info re just about every winery on Seneca.
