Wine Review: This straw-colored Chardonnay from Cambria was described as a food wine by the Tasting Panel. It opens with a shy oak and apple bouquet with hints of lemon. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and very smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild green apple with notes of lime, vanilla and light oak. We also picked up some hints of toasted almond, minerality and caramel mixed in as well. The finish is dry and lingers nicely. The Panel suggested pairing this Chard with grilled trout with butter or Rhode Island clam cakes. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Fresh fruit and floral aromas dominate the nose; pink grapefruit, tangerine, citrus blossom, and apple flavors are complemented by a bit of wet stone. The oak influence creates a nice mid-palate, the wine shows a balanced acidity that carries through the long finish. - Jill Russell, Winemaker
