Kevin Zraly Serves and Raves About Millbrook Chardonnay
I was recently at a private tasting at the Mohonk Mountain House where Kevin Zraly of the Windows on the World Wine School was giving a short but very enjoyable wine presentation. He walked us through two whites, two red, and a port. It was most enjoyable.
Most surprising was one of his picks for the two whites: Millbrook Chardonnay. Now I am not surprised he picked Millbrook - it's a fantastic wine. But I was both surprised and pleased he picked something from the Hudson Valley.
He spoke glowingly of the wine, raving about the fresh fruit, and the oaking, which he considered light and just right (and spoke several times about it not being over oaked).
Zraly also spoke glowingly of John Dyson (one of the people who made the farm winery act a reality and helped to bring a new chapter to Hudson Valley Wine) and Millbrook. Congrats to the folks at Millbrook. And winemaker John Graziano deserves a mention too!
