Wine Review: This pale gold colored Chardonnay from Flanagan was well-received by the Tasting Panel and all those on Zoom call. It opens with a grilled pineapple and Honeydew melon bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with pleasant medium plus acidity. The flavor profile is a tasty green apple and pineapple blend with notes of minerality and oak. We also detected hints of white pepper and lemon. The finish is long and dry with its minerality lingering. The Panel suggested pairing this Chard with seafood Newburg. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2015 Flanagan Chardonnay Ritchie Vineyard was barrel fermented in 50% new French oak and aged sur lies in barrel for 11 months before being transferred into a tank for a remaining 5 months. This wine is rich in texture with great acidity. The flavor profile shows ripe pear notes and the minerality unique to the volcanic soils of this legendary Sonoma County vineyard.
