Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay was clearly the best Chard we tried at this years Boston Wine Expo. It opens with a light vanilla oak like bouquet with a hint of banana. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, creamy, and very well balanced with delicious light lemon flavors. We also detected some infused light oak and butter flavors as well with a dash of spice. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. We felt this wine would pair nicely with brie or turkey. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intense aromas of tropical fruit, lemon zest, and fresh pear; combined with fig, vanilla, and spice. The mouth is rich - filled with bright flavors of wildflower honey, green apple, and nutmeg. Firm acidity provides a bright finish of citrus, mineral, and toasted oak.
