Wine Review: This pale straw colored Chardonnay from down under opens with a lemon and green apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced between its acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a light lemon and mild minerality blend with notes of saline and green apple. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Chard is very food friendly. It would pair well with many foods. I would choose baked Dover sole. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The nose is bright and concentrated with subtle complexity, featuring lime, golden pear and white peach. Aromatic sweet spices of cinnamon and nutmeg with deeper tones of sesame, cashew and nougat provide depth and layers. Elevated jasmine floral notes enhance the purity and varietal expression. Definitively modern Leeuwin Estate Chardonnay; the palate exudes vibrancy with delicate textures. The intensity of pear, lime and lemon across the palate is threaded with a finite acid spine that is laced with spice and savory notes, leading to a seamless and elegant finish.
