Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a fragrant pineapple and lime bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is a mild oak influenced apple with notes hints of white pepper, pineapple and lemon. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This very nice Chard and it is food friendly. I would pair it with Chicken Francaise. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The wine is concentrated candy for adults: the nose of pear, mango and tangerine fruit, with tones of toffee, ginger, mineral and honeydew lure you in, while focused flavors of lychee, melon and lime keep you coming back. We prize Rued for its cleansing phenolic edge and bright acidity which balances its lushness, and carries the pear, apple and buttercream finish. You will be rewarded by letting it open up in the glass, not to mention aging for many years to come.
