Wine Review: This translucent and bright straw-colored Chardonnay opens with a light butterscotch and lemon zest bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and has some brightness. The flavor profile is lemon, gentle butterscotch, and marzipan blend with notes of oak and butter. We also detected hints of golden delicious apple and toasted coconut flakes in the mix. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity linger and last for a long time. This Chard would pair well with lobster bisque. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Richly aromatic with notes of white fig, and citrus blossom, this captivating Chardonnay slowly builds on the palate, progressing from silky notes of honeydew, nectarine and lemon zest to a full finish supported by elegant, toasted oak. Crisp minerality and juicy acidity lift and support the generous fruit and provide the framework for graceful aging. This wine will continue to gain richness and complexity in the bottle and glass.
