Wine Review: This rich yellow Chardonnay opens with a lemon like bouquet with notes of buttered popcorn and banana. On the palate, this wine is round, creamy, with apple, pineapple, and other citrusy influences. The finish is dry and a bit subtle. The wine is a very nice everyday offering, Theresa really enjoyed it each time we tried it over a couple of days. We felt the wine would pair nicely with many foods and particularly well with sharp cheddar cheese and crackers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine is the result of marriage of 2 lots,(50-50) one of which has completed Malolactic fermentation and one which has not. Malolactic fermentation brings the wholeness and buttery character, and the non malolactic brings bright fruit and structure. The result is a supreme balance that could keep the most snobbish wine drinker happy.
