Wine Review: The pale straw-colored Chardonnay opens with an inviting mild pineapple and oak bouquet with a hint of lemon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a tasty oak and pear blend with notes of pineapple and a hint of lemon. The finish is dry and drifts away nicely. This Chardonnay is very food friendly and will be a crowd pleaser. You will likely find it as a glass pour at fine restaurants. You’ll be very happy you tried it. Cheers – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine has a pretty, floral nose with fresh citrus, orange blossom and white peach, but the real treat is in the mouth. The viscosity coats the palate; it is weighty on the tongue yet well-balanced with acidity. The finish is clean with a nice zing and lingering minerality intertwined with pear and apple lemon.
