Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chard was the winner of a mini-flight of Chards under $20. It opens with a spicy pear and light oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a light oak infused Bartlett pear with hints of butter. The finish is dry and pleasant. Pair this Chard with fresh made chicken and wild mushroom ravioli with a light cream sauce. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Aromas of Jasmine, Lychee and Tea Rose transition on the palate to flavors of lemon drop, ripe pear and crisp green apple. This Chardonnay offers a smokey, spicy anise character that weaves through the honeyed finish.
