Wine Review: This medium gold colored Chardonnay opens with a fragrant grilled pineapple and ripe Bartlett pear bouquet with hints of butter, coconut and apple. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied, well balanced, creamy, rich and smooth. The flavor profile is pear, vanilla, oak and pineapple blend with hints of butterscotch and lemon verbena. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely extended. The Panel would pair this polished Chardonnay with crab-stuffed halibut. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This gorgeous Chardonnay displays straw with shimmering gold highlights. The wine coats the glass when swirled and rolls about the bowl with a silky, satin texture. The nose bears tropical notes with a full profile of ripe ruby red grapefruit, white peach and a dash of apricot. The French oak stands dutifully in the background allowing the fruit to elevate to perfection. On the palate there is a distinct richness that makes the fruit and oak balance become even more evident. The lush qualities of this wine envision many excellent pairings with a variety of cuisines. This Chardonnay can be enjoyed now but will have a long and gracious life in the bottle.
