Wine Review: This medium gold colored Chardonnay opens with a gentle pineapple and ripe Bosc pear bouquet with hints of vanilla and oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is bright, creamy, and savory. The flavor profile is an oak influenced pineapple and ripe Bosc pear blend with notes of chalky minerality. We also discovered some hints of lemon cream and vanilla in the mix. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Chard with a pan-seared halibut with a garlic crab topping. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This wine is perfumed in brioche and baked apple, with seasonings of nutmeg and vanilla. It opens in a rich, full-bodied concentration of citrus and white peach and evolves on the palate to show structure and depth. Bright acidity lifts hints of toasted oak, maintaining a fresh and plush finish.
