Wine Review: This dark yellow colored Chardonnay from Fess Parker is consistently very good. The 2013 opens with lemon bouquet with hints of buttered croissant and oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a mineral infused lemon with hints of apple, pear and gentle oak. The finish is dry and subtle. This Chardonnay would pair well with stuffed Statler chicken breast. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Chardonnay has a concentrated nose with aromas of lemon, mineral, vanilla, toast and golden delicious apples. Rich and luscious showing flavors of citrus, pear, apple fruits and a slight oak toast this chardonnay is bound together by mouth-watering acidity and mineral finish. Enjoy with Poached Salmon, Meyer Lemon Risotto or Chicken Cordon Bleu.
