Wine Review: This slightly cloudy and deep yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a musty green apple bouquet with hints of lemon and almond. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and slightly acidic. The flavor profile is a tart green apple and light lemon blend with notes of mild minerality and chamomile tea. There is some hints of oak towards the end. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors fade away nicely. This Chard would pair well with halibut chowder. Enjoy – Ken
