Wine Review: This medium yellow colored Chardonnay from DAOU opens with a fragrant pineapple, green apple, and mango bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced and round. The flavor profile is a stony mineral infused Bartlett pear with notes of pineapple and nutmeg. I also detected hints of oak and green apple. The finish is dry and refreshing for a Chard. I would pair this Chard with a Point Reyes Toma cheese. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2020 Chardonnay presents luscious aromas of pineapple, pear, and Granny Smith apple with appealing hints of lemon chiffon, nectarine and honeysuckle. As the experience unfolds, the nose further reveals hints of star jasmine, nutmeg, and vanilla bean. The palate is plush and graceful, offering mouthwatering flavors of peach, mango, kiwi, and fresh Crenshaw melon. The rich fruit is perfectly complemented by suggestions of lemon zest and baking spice, while a voluptuous finish lingers with notes of pineapple, guava, and hazelnut.
