Wine Review: This light straw colored Chardonnay from Merry Edwards opens with a bright green apple and mild oak bouquet with a hint of Anjou pear. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a butterscotch and pear blend with hints of pineapple and touch of grapefruit. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for a while. The Panel suggested pairing this wine with chicken cordon bleu or baked stuffed Cherrystone clams. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The wine's heady perfume is mouthwatering and enticing. Extended time on the lees and biweekly stirring have developed an opulent aroma reminiscent of ripe, baked apples and creme brulee with fresh-grated nutmeg and vanilla. This complements the underlying, expansive spectrum of orchard fruits - white peach, nectarine, Golden Delicious apple and Anjou pear. Scents of David Austin roses, jasmine and tuberoses add even more fragrance. Highly textural, this Chardonnay shows off a decadent palate that is weighty and voluptuous. A hint of racy, sweet Meyer lemon balances a rich core, creating a harmony of opposites and leading us to a bright, lifted and lasting finish. It virtually beckons us for a second sip and promises much still to come!
