Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Chardonnay from Crossbarn opens with a mild bread dough and gentle pineapple with a hint of pear. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and a bit savory. The flavor profile is a pineapple and white pepper blend with notes of white tea, toasted almond and stony minerality. I also detected hints of Bosc pear. The finish is rather dry, and its flavors and acidity are nicely extended. I would pair this Chard with linguini with white clam sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Hailing from the cool Sonoma Coast appellation, the 2022 vintage showcases pale straw in the glass and opens with aromas of green apple, lemon zest, and honeysuckle. Alluring flavors of Honeycrisp apple and Asian pear are balanced by a flinty minerality and creamy texture on the mid-palate. A vibrant acidity accented by flaky sea salt provides tension and length that drives a lingering finish with notes of tangerine and guava. Perfect for a wide range of foods or enjoyed on its own.
