Wine Review: This pale straw-colored opens with a vanilla custard, green apple, and lemon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced. The flavor profile is a chalky mineral influenced and crème brulee blend with notes of Anjou pear and hints of clover honey. The finish is dry, and its flavors fade away nicely. This Chard would pair well with white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our Rued Chardonnay opens with classic lychee and tangerine aromatics that are framed by pretty gardenia, Asian pear, and a little nutty brioche. In the mouth, the wine is rich yet remains light on its feet, and beautifully balanced. Lively lemon drop flavors lead the way, supported by jasmine accents. The long succulent pear pie finish is topped off with brisk citrus zest before a final kiss of butterscotch. Go with dishes that match the texture of the wine, such as a creamy lobster risotto, seared scallops, and butter poached halibut.
