Wine Review: This faint straw-colored Chardonnay from Freemark Abbey is very good. It opens with an attractive lemon verbena bouquet with a hint of apple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a mild oak influenced apple with notes of lemon verbena and Bartlett pear. I also detected some vanilla and oak in the background. The flavors extend into the finish and linger nicely. This Chard would pair well with chicken piccata. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Brilliant light straw color with youthful greenish hues, our Chardonnay expresses fruit aroma of banana, pear, white peach, lemon oil, mango, papaya, melon and citrus. Adding to the complexity, the French oak aging is well integrated with the barrel fermentation bouquet of fresh baked bread, angel food, nutmeg and vanilla. 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.
