Wine Review: This deep yellowish gold colored Chardonnay opens with a cantaloupe and pineapple bouquet with hints of lemon and mango. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and supple. The flavor profile is a pineapple upside down cake and cantaloupe blend notes of mango and banana. I also detected hints of coconut and butterscotch. The finish is dry, and its flavors linger nicely. This Chard would pair well with pasta carbonara. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2021 Chardonnay "Pearl Collection" bursts from the glass with warm aromas of tropical fruit, butterscotch, quince, and biscotti. A smooth, viscous mouthfeel displays layered flavors of apricot, pear, caramelized apple, and lime zest with suggestions of stony minerality. Satiny textures and light oak notes extend deep into a clean, soft finish. Enjoy this full-bodied Chardonnay with creamy pasta, grilled citrus chicken, butter-poached scallops, and roast salmon.
