Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a mild butterscotch and light lemon bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a light oak infused apple with hints of light lemon. The finish is dry and lingers slightly. This value Chardonnay would pair well with shrimp scampi. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The Grand Estates Chardonnay opens with bright fruit aromas of apple and pear which harmonize gracefully with signature notes of caramelized sugar and butterscotch. Ripe fruit flavors are bolstered by lively acidity, yet balanced deftly with a subtle creaminess. The striking combination of rich flavors, ample body and refreshing finish make this wine a natural pairing for a wide array of foods.
