Wine Review: This dark yellow Chardonnay from California opens with a pleasant pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and a little juicy. The flavor profile is a mild mineral and Anjou pear blend with notes of oak. I also detected hints of pineapple and apple pie spice towards the end. The finish is dry and lingers nicely. This Chard is both affordable and friendly. It would pair well with Dijon-tarragon cream chicken. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: I make this style with the thought of coming home from work, putting your feet up, and relaxing with a refreshing glass of Chardonnay in hand. I keep it fruit forward and clean. The barrels are only used to round the wine and add just a touch of richness. This Chardonnay is extremely versatile. It will go perfectly with spicier food like curry or pair up well with lighter seafood dishes.
