St. Hubertus Estate Winery 2009 Chasselas - 86pts
Availability: Direct from winery here
Date Tasted: May 24th, 2011
Tasting Notes: "Chassel-what?" Although most prominently known as a Swiss grape, Chasselas may have more synonyms than any other varietal which likely contributes to its relative unfamiliarity with many North American wine drinkers. The St. Hubertus Estate Winery edition is a straight-shooting, low-alcohol and joyful wine that offers delicate aromas of peaches, golden delicious apples and violets on the nose followed by an off-dry palate of mild citrus, orchard and tropical fruit flavours.
A fun picnic wine that won't wear down your alcohol tolerance quickly and keep you refreshed in the sunshine with good acidity and sweetness. Enjoy this wine in its youth. Drink 2011-2012.
