Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Chardonnay from Alpha Omega opens with a pineapple, vanilla, and caramel bouquet with hints of white peach and lemon. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with nicely integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, round, and rich. The flavor profile is an oak influenced pineapple and butterscotch blend with notes of green apple and saline. We also detected some hints of cashew, flinty minerality, and a touch of lemon. The finish is dry, and its acidity and flavors show very nice length. The Tasting Panel would pair this Chard with lobster bisque or a whole lobster with drawn butter. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Sight: Translucent lemon with hints of sage green.
Nose: Elegant fruit and floral aromas of honey crisp apples and vine flowers are accented by notes of cashews, toast, farro and dried sage.
Palate: Integrated citrus fruit, mango, tres leches and tarragon flavors are complemented by a balancing acidity and a chalky, mineral finish.
