Wine Review: This medium straw-colored Chardonnay opens with a faint pineapple and Bosc pear bouquet with a faint hint of oak and wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is fresh, delicate, round, and nicely balanced. The flavor profile is white peach and Anjou pear blend with notes of chalky minerality and mild pineapple. We also detected hints of white pepper and saline and touch of oak. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Chard with trout almondine and a roasted lemon garlic chicken. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Luminus is fresh and lively with aromas of white floral blossom, honeysuckle and ripe citrus fruits. The intriguing aromas unfold into layers of flavor where white apricot, fresh apple, essence of bergamot, and lemon curd notes are interwoven with whipped meringue, spiced Asian pear and delicate almond notes. The judicious use of French oak offers subtle nutty spice character and the bâttonage treatment provides an unexpectedly plush mouthfeel and texture with mouthwatering crisp acidity leading to a long, pleasing finish with delicate hints of stone minerality.
