Wine Review: This light golden straw-colored Chardonnay opens with an attractive citrus bouquet that includes cantaloupe, tangerine, butter and light lime. I also detected hints of wet stone. The bouquet on this medium bodied Chardonnay follows through on the palate with citrus, tangerine and lime flavors. The flavor profile also included some pineapple and light oak as well. I enjoyed the pleasant acidity and the satisfying finish which faded away nicely. I though this Chard was food friendly. I would pair it with pan-seared scallops with a bacon cream sauce. - Joe

Winemaker Notes: Our estate-grown Chardonnay is balanced, rich and harmonious, year after year. At first swirl, aromas of baked apple, Asian pear and apricot fill the senses. After a few moments of airing, nuances of fresh lime, honeysuckle and candied ginger come forward. The palate is filled with rich flavors of poached pear, Meyer lemon and pineapple, with notes of nutmeg and cinnamon. The mouthfeel is broad and expansive with juicy, delicious acidity. The balance between fruit, oak and acid is harmonious from start to finish.
