Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Chardonnay opens with a pineapple, pear and oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The flavor profile is a mild mineral, Anjou pear and oak blend. I also detected hints of pineapple and bread dough. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Chard would pair nicely with pasta carbonara. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine displays a rich golden tone, with brilliant clarity. I find expressive aromas of golden apple, figs and ripe pear. These aromas integrate nicely with richer aromas of light caramel, truffle, and a nice complement of toasted vanillin oak. There is an earthy tone that I find very appealing. On the palate, the wine is rich and full on the attack, encompassed by a full-bodied creamy texture, which leads seamlessly into the lingering finish.
