Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from Flowers opens with an inviting tangerine and mild mango bouquet with of vanilla, lemon and oak. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and crisp. The flavor profile is a tasty lemon with hints of tangerine and lime. I also detected some very gentle oak that was nicely integrated throughout. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity linger nicely after the wine is gone. This crowd pleasing Chard paired well with my grilled Halibut drizzled with a lemon butter sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Pale gold color. Enticing, airy aromas of lemon zest and lime blossom are brought back to earth with those of bayleaf and wet flint. Fresh flavors of Asian pear and Honeycrisp apple are supported by abundant texture in the mid-palate. With vibrant acidity, typical of the extreme Sonoma Coast, this Chardonnay finishes with length and elegance.
