Wine Review: This straw-colored Chardonnay opens with a lemon cake and dried coconut bouquet with hints of white peach. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and bright. The flavor profile is lemon butter, ginger, and white pepper blend with notes of stony minerality, vanilla soda, and gentle oak. I also detected a hint of dried coconut in the aftertaste. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity linger nicely. I would drink this Chard with a seared scallops with a coconut cream sauce. Enjoy - Ken

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.
