Wine Review: This medium gold colored Chardonnay from Dutton Goldfield is very good. It opens with a fragrant apple and pineapple bouquet with notes of crème brulee and oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel round and a little viscous. The flavor profile is ripe Bartlett pear and pineapple blend with notes of chalky minerality, baked apple, ginger, oak, and baking spices. The finish is dry, and its acidity and flavors linger and last for quite a while. I would pair this tasty Chard with Emeril's kicked up crab cakes. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our 2019 Chardonnay has beautiful ripeness and balance. The nose smells rich and inviting, with notes of lemon oil, almond brioche, and a tropical mélange of lychee, pineapple, and kiwi surrounding the core of tangerine and zesty Eureka lemon. This decadence is continued in the mouth, which is creamy with honeyed citrus and pear, along with exotic guava and hazelnut, but always with the fresh lemon/lime center keeping it lively. A little crushed oyster shell minerality adds an invigorating edge to the fruit, and makes you ponder shellfish matches for the wine.
