Wine Review: This white gold colored Chardonnay from the Leeuwin Estate is very good. It opens with a pineapple and honeydew melon bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mild oak influenced lemon and pineapple blend with hints green apple and butter. The finish is dry and it flavors linger and last for quite a while. This Chard would pair well chicken francese. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Heightened with notes of jasmine, frangipani and lemon blossom. Nuances of nougat, cashew and toasted almonds combine with brioche, brulee and mealy notes lying beneath. The palate is bright, well weighted with volume and presence, whilst maintaining focus and definition. Pink grapefruit, white nectarine and baked apple feature with diligent oak and subtle texture. The layered and contoured mid palate is finely checked with mineral acid thread.

Organic status: not organic
