Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from Benovia is Excellent! It opens with a mild pear bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very smooth and elegant. The flavor profile is a tasty gentle pear with notes of mild oak, faint apple and pineapple. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Chard is terrific and it would pair perfectly with Coquilles St. Jacques or crab cakes. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This intense and concentrated single vineyard Chardonnay begins with vivid aromas of acacia, pineapple and green papaya. Then the vibrancy of the wines' aroma is matched by its opulent texture and layered flavors of apricot, white peach with a mineral laden finish. Indigenous yeast fermentation in French oak barrels and extended aging of 16 months on lees has produced a wine with exceptional complexity
