Wine Review: This light gold colored Chardonnay from California opens with an Anjou pear and apple skin bouquet with hints of pineapple and wet stone. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and fresh for a Chard. The flavor profile is a chamomile tea and Anjou pear blend with notes of pineapple and oak. I also detected hints of lemon verbena, vanilla, and white pepper. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity are nicely prolonged. I would pair this Chard with corn chowder. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Enticing aromatics of sweet citrus, Fuji apple, and peach mingle with lovely notes of custard and vanilla in this energetic and alluring Chardonnay. On the palate, bright acidity leads to beautiful layers of citrus, baking spices, and hints of vanilla, carrying the wine to a lengthy finish.
