Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Chardonnay from Freemark Abbey was well liked by our tasting group. It opens with a very very faint pineapple and oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and very easy to drink. The flavor profile is like the nose. Those flavors are light oak, with some mild green apple and a touch of pineapple and ginger. The finish is dry and refreshing for a Chard. We all thought it was food friendly and would pair nicely with garlic chicken. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Light greenish straw in color, our Chardonnay expresses fruit aromas of green banana, guava, apricot, peach, and citrus such as mandarin orange and grapefruit. Adding to the complexity, the French oak aging is well integrated with the barrel fermentation bouquet of fresh baked bread. 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 compliment many foods.
