Wine Review: This yellow colored Chardonnay from the Santa Rita Hills is very good. It opens with a lemon and vanilla bean bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mild lemon and oak blend with notes of Werther's Original candy and a touch of gentle minerality. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Chard is very nice on its own. It could be paired with a lobster roll. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This bright wine exhibits focused characteristics with aromas of stone fruit, ripe pear and jasmine. The entry is fruit driven with hints of toasted oak, Fuji apple and white peach, giving an element of purity to the mid-palate. Finishing clean with fresh minerality and broad texture, the wine is a beautiful example of Santa Rita Hills Chardonnay.
