Wine Review: If you love Chardonnay and have not tried a Chard from the Truchard Vineyards you are missing out on some truly good wine. Every Chard we try from their vineyards is truly enjoyable. The new release continues that tradition. This yellow colored wine opens with a light lemon custard like bouquet with a hint of light oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced, and very smooth with lemon and guava flavors. The finish is dry and nicely prolonged. This wine is very easy to drink and food friendly. It will pair well with many foods. We would pair it with one of our favorites. Chicken St. Timothy. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A floral nose tropical fruit, Meyer lemon, and pineapple; combined with fig, vanilla, and spice. The mouth is filled with intense flavors of wildflower honey, green apple, and fresh pear. Firm acidity provides a bright finish of citrus, mineral, and toasted oak.

Organic status: not organic
