As the oaked Finger Lakes Chardonnays go, this one is not too bad if you like that style. They make a 'Reserve' that sees even more oak, so don't go there (although it is pretty well done, too). Ten years ago there was this idea that Finger Lakes Chardonnays should try to emulate those from California, and there were lots of barrel fermented oak monsters (and not always top-flight oak, either) that many Americans associate with 'Chardonnay'. Now, as Carl has pointed out, there is a throttling back of the oak at many producers, with many making a non-oak version. These can be lovely, crisp wines, but are often priced at the low end ($10-$12/bottle), suggesting to the consumer that they are something less than the oaked version of the same producer, which is usually at least a few dollars more. It would be interesting to see a producer from the region make a sans-oak wine that was unapologetically their top Chardonnay. Oddly, Lamoreaux Landing is one of the first FL producers to make a Cabernet Franc that sees no oak (T-23) alongside the regular oak aged version.
I'll also agree that it is odd that a Riesling wasn't chosen for export, although they might have gotten a good deal on the Chardonnay!
