Wine Review: This pale gold-colored Chardonnay opens with a gentle oak and ripe pineapple bouquet with hints of a warm brioche roll, lemon , and banana. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and viscous. The flavor profile is a pear and mango blend with notes of oak, pineapple, and vanilla. We also detected hints of pie crust, lime, and integrated stony minerality. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Chard with chicken and wild mushroom ravioli with a butter cream sauce or lobster bisque. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This alluring wine displays a lovely bouquet of fresh orange blossom, pear, vanilla, and white peach, with subtle layers of lime zest and candied pineapple emerging as it opens up. The palate is lively and bright, revealing energetic layers of fruit and flowers with hints of toasted brioche and crushed rock lingering throughout a long, lush finish.
