Wine Review: This light yellow Chard from Dry Creek Vineyards seems to be very consistent every year. This year’s vintage was again recommended by the KWG tasting panel. This Chard opens with a shy light green apple and honeydew melon bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is smooth, creamy, balanced, and has pineapple and lime like flavors. The finish is dry and lingers slightly. The panel felt this wine would pair well with chicken picatta. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of peach, apricot, pear, and toasted almonds. More complex aromas of spice and hazelnut are revealed after several minutes in the glass. On the palate, crisp acidity from our cool weather vineyards strike an excellent balance with subtle oak nuances. The finish is long and lingering with additional vanilla and cream elements that add even more finesse and elegance to this beautiful wine.
