Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Chardonnay from Decoy opens with a light lemon and pineapple bouquet with hints of green apple. On the palate, this wine is light plus bodied and acidic. The flavor profile is a zesty lemon and gravelly mineral blend with notes of green apple and faint oak. We also detected hints of Honeydew melon. The finish is dry and extended. The Panel suggested pairing his Chard with shrimp pad Thai or Thai spring rolls. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This deliciously bright and inviting Chardonnay offers layers of apricot, citrus and green apple, as well as hints of fresh honeysuckle and cinnamon. On the palate, the lovely pure fruit flavors are underscored by delicate acidity and a supple richness from sur lie aging.
