Wine Review: This pale gold colored Chardonnay opens with an Anjou pear and green apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild pear and gentle oak blend with notes of faint minerality. I also detected hints of almond and a touch of pineapple. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Chard would pair nicely with chicken and wild mushroom ravioli with a light cream sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Light greenish straw in color, our Chardonnay expresses fruit aroma of ripe pineapple, ripe banana, guava, apricot, peach and tropical fruit cocktail. Adding to the complexity, the oak aging is fairly integrated adding spice like nutmeg, light toast, and the nuance of angel food cake. This wine has great viscosity, depth and an intriguing long finish. The flavors are lively on the palate with pear, citrus, lemon-lime, green apple and fleshy peach. This wine shows great complexity, creaminess, and elegance to complement many foods.
