Wine Review: This deep yellow colored Chardonnay from Amici opens with a fragrant grilled pineapple and oak bouquet with hints of ripe apple. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, bold and rich. The flavor profile is a big and bold blend of pineapple, oak, pear, and apricot. I also detected some hints of spice and butter pecan in the mix. The finish is quite lengthy. This Chard paired perfectly with Stefano's homemade crab cakes over lobster mashed potatoes. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2020 Amici Charles Heintz Chardonnay is a classic representation of this stunning coastal vineyard. Aromas of pineapple, marigold and wet stone begin on the nose, while the palate is full of fresh apricot along with cinnamon and nutmeg. The mouthwatering acidity is perfectly balanced by the wine’s long, juicy finish, and has enough density and richness to age for 3-5 years
