With 12.7% alcohol, this Colts Neck, New Jersey Chardonnay from the 2014 Four J G’s Vineyard, at 15 years old held together. It cost under $15 then, and scored 14+ points on the Dionysian scale. It was not over oaked; it’s starting to show the nuttiness of ever so slight materization, and had medium weight.
The deep gold shows its age. The wine was balanced. Nice job.
This was more of an experiment than a cellared wine to share on a special occasion. However, it proves that New Jersey can produce some very interesting wines. In Vino Veritas.
