Wine Review: This light straw colored Chardonnay from Giant Steps is impressive. It opens with a lemon and apple bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty green pear and buttered popcorn blend with hints of orange, pineapple, oak and honey. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Chardonnay is food friendly and would pair well with fettuccine alfredo. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The nose offers aromas of fresh cream, white peaches, river stones, spearmint, curry leaf, and muesli. The palate is long and lush with beautiful chalkiness. Alongside a backbone of crisp and punchy acidity are notes of Granny Smith apple skins, green mango, and shortbread.

Organic status: not organic
