Wine Review: If you a lover of sweet dessert wines and you can not afford some of the elite offering, this sticky might meet your needs and will definitely fit your budget. The Stump Jump Stick Chardonnay is dark yellow colored and opens with a fragrant quince bouquet with hints of orange marmalade and apricot. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and rich. The flavor profile is a honey and apricot blend with a hint of raisin. The finish is sweet and lingers slightly. I would pair this affordable dessert wine with sharp cheddar cheese and sliced green apples. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The nose is packed with rich flavors of marmalade, kumquat, ripe peach and orange butter. The palate is unctuous with the kumquat character coming through and layers of yellow peach, butterscotch and a hint of green apple. The finish has a touch of lemon acidity with a lingering orange rind character. This sweet wine can be served with dessert, cheeses, fresh fruit or dribbled over vanilla ice cream.
