Wine Review: I have a relative that are going to this winery for a wedding this summer, so I thought I would preview this wine for them. The wine had a pleasant bouquet with vanilla accents. On the palate, the wine had a creamy feel with a hint of vanilla flavors. This wine will match well with the chicken or fish meal they will be served at the wedding. The finish is pleasant. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Smoky aromas of vanillin oak and sweet spice balance white peach, pineapple and citrus aromas. The white peach and citrus notes and the subtle minerality of the finish are enhanced by fullness on the palate and length of finish. Enjoy this Chardonnay with roasted chicken, cream-based pasta and vegetarian dishes.

Organic status: not organic

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Chardonnay.

Your comments on this wine:

The name of a region on an American wine label (e.g. Napa Valley) means that at least 85% of the grapes used in making the wine were grown in that region.
