Wind Gap wines is the new project by Pax Mahle, who formerly made wines under his namesake winery: Pax Wines. Wind Gap is Mahle's new project since his breaking ties with the ownership group that was at the helm at Pax.. Thanks to a local wine enthusiast, I was able to try this terrific Chardonnay over another great lunch at Bocado on Atlanta's west side.
The 2007 Chardonnay is tropical and full-bodied, yet it doesn't ever become to Californian. It lacks some cut to make it truly outstanding, but it is a fine Cali Chardonnay that would be great on the deck in summer with shellfish or grilled fare.
