Wine Review: There is definite oak on the nose of this wine. On the palate, there are distinctive vanilla and oak flavors that come through. The finish is oaky as well. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: At first swirl, this Chardonnay has a brilliant light yellow, golden color, which is clear and precise. On the nose, there is wonderful complexity with enticing aromas of citrus, hazelnut, pear and spicy nuances. Dense, minerally and perfumed in the mouth, with excellent structure, this wine is rich without being overpowering. The finish combines citrus nuances and a penetrating stony character, as the lingering flavors of pear make this Chardonnay even more enticing.
