Wine Review: This light-yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a green apple and lemon bouquet with hints if ginger, pineapple and banana. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic, round and viscous. The flavor profile is a pineapple and golden delicious apple blend with notes of coconut, lemon butter and oak. The finish is dry and its flavors have nice length. This fresh styled Chard would pair nicely with chicken Francese. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is a Chardonnay that is sure to win over committed non-Chardonnay fans. The nose is a complex array of Meyer lemon, ripe pineapple, and apricot, with a touch of pear blossoms, toasted coconut, and cashew. In the mouth, blissful waves of lemon and key lime caress your palate, on a texture that’s the combination of lusciousness and freshness we love in the best Chardonnays. The finish is lively, long, and focused. Pair with a smoked trout salad or chicken Dijon.
