Wine Review: This medium gold colored Chardonnay from Gary Farrell opens with a mild pear, vanilla, and oak bouquet a touch of butterscotch and mango. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with nicely integrated acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, gentle, smooth, and clean. The flavor profile is tasty ripe Anjou pear and mild chalky minerality blend with hints of pineapple. The finish is dry and is flavors and fine acidity drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this refined Chard with a broiled scallops with a lemon. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Lush and inviting, this offering from the Rochioli vineyard presents a wealth of stone fruits, crème brulee, and vanilla paste that is set along a backdrop of climbing flowers. Fresh lemon zest provides a brilliant counterpoint, inviting further exploration. The palate is precise and balanced, with tangy citrus flavors that integrate seamlessly throughout the mid-palate, contributing to an exceptionally long, mouthwatering finish.
