Wine Review: This light straw colored Chardonnay from De Morgenzon is impressive. It opens with an oak influenced Bosc pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty oak influenced green apple with notes of Anjou pear. I also detected a hint of pineapple. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Chard is food friendly and would pair nicely with a chicken cordon bleu. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Decadent golden with green hues, this Chardonnay exhibits aromas of toasted brioche with zesty marmalade. A backbone of lime and lemongrass with floral notes of honeysuckle and frangipani emerge on the palate. Warm, rich vanilla and a creamy almond nuance linger on the finish.
