Wine Review: This pale gold colored Chardonnay opens with a ripe cantaloupe and pineapple bouquet with hints of pear. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with medium acidity. The flavor profile is pineapple and Anjou pear blend with notes of almond, chalky minerality and oak. I also detected hints of green melon and saline. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity show nice length. I would pair this very food friendly Chard with chicken piccata. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Embodying the cool-climate essence of the Central Coast, this sleek and radiant Chardonnay displays alluring aromas of Asian pear, apricot and lemon zest, with hints of chapparal and lavender. On the palate, lively acidity and a supple, mouthcoating texture frame the pear, citrus and stone fruit flavors carrying the wine to a lush, energetic finish.
