Wine Review: This pale-yellow colored Chardonnay from Chalk Hill opens with a pineapple, mango, and spice bouquet with a hint of yeast. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and a little bright. The flavor profile is a chalky minerality, pineapple and apple turnover blend with notes of oak and almond. There are hints of baking spices and poached pear towards the end. The finish is dry, and its flavors show nice length. This Chard paired will with Lucia’s Pollo e Zucca di Zucca aka sauteed chicken with butternut squash ravioli simmered in a parmesan cheese, and chiffonade fresh sage cream sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Chalk Hill Estate Chardonnay is creamy, rich, and elegant, and captures the character of our Estate-grown grapes. It features complex aromas and flavors of poached pear, lemon cream, toasted marshmallow, baked apple, exotic spice, and a fresh acidity. This is an age-worthy wine of exceptional quality known for its long, rich, and elegant finish.
