clovis point wines entry

Before venturing to Clovis Point I had been given a bottle of their Chardonnay, which I re-gifted to a friend because I enjoy Chardonnay the least of all white wines. My mistake! My friend told me how delicious the Clovis Point Chardonnay was and I had to make the trip to see what all the fuss was about.

Starting our white wine tasting with the 2014 Stainless Chardonnay, this 97% Chardonnay/3% Gewurztraminer wine had an oakey aroma but the taste was crisp, with no oakey flavor. It was delicious! Next was the grassy 2014 Sauvignon Blanc. Last was the 2014 Black Label Chardonnay, 70% steel and 30% barrel fermented with a slightly oakey aroma, and fruity taste. The Stainless Chardonnay was a definite stand-out.

We ordered a plate of brie, crackers and fig spread to finish with a glass of the stainless Chardonnay at a table in the dimly-lit tasting room, though there were tables outside on the lawn as well. A nice quiet end to our trip out east.

Clovis Point is a great place to stop into, even if you’re not into the oakey flavors of a traditional Chardonnay. You’ll be surprised!
