Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chard opens with a butterscotch like bouquet with hints of ripe pear and honey detected as well. On the palate, this Chard is full bodied, balanced, and creamy. The flavor profile is a toasty oak with hints fruit blended in. Those fruits are lime, pear, and pineapple. The finish is dry and a bit tingly. Our mini group thought this oak driven Chard would pair well with a rich seafood casserole. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This fine Chardonnay treats you to an aroma of ripe pear, honey, and citrus. Its silky creamy texture of vanilla, oak, and apple coat the palate. This vintage ends with a very long finish of rich butter and nutmeg. You will find this medium bodied great balanced wine fantastic to drink today or add it to your wine cellar for a treat over the next 8-10 years.
