Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from Calera is very good. It opens with a lemon and wet stone bouquet with hints of oak and honey. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very smooth upon entry, slightly acidic, juicy and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tasty lemon with notes of mild minerality and Anjou pear. I also detected hints of white pepper, tangerine and oak towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Chard is food friendly and would pair well with chicken cordon bleu. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This beautiful 2014 Chardonnay possesses delightful notes of hibiscus, pineapple and citrus. Flavors are so wonderfully integrated and balanced; Fuji apple, lemon chiffon and a soft, round, sensuous mouthfeel with a nice bright sweet-tart personality. A delicious wine all around.
