Wine Review: This gold colored Italian white made from Chardonnay is for readers who want to try something totally different. It opens with an orange and chamomile tea like bouquet with hints of honey and bees wax. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, acidic, lively, yet lush. The flavor profile is similar to the nose. It consists of an orange and chamomile tea with hints of vanilla oak, apricot, apple and white pepper. The finish is dry and its drift away nicely. This wine is food friendly and would pair well with grilled rainbow trout drizzled with a lemon butter sauce. Grilled asparagus on the side would go nicely well. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A wine with personality and elegance, it combines power and softness. Aromas of ripe yellow fruit, especially apples, and notes of peaches and vanilla fused with peanut butter. The flavour is round and mouth-filling. An imposing structure with a perfect balance of acidity and flavour. Excellent ageing potential. Food & Wine: Perfect with smoked fish, pasta dishes and Sicilian cuisine.
