Wine Review: This very pale straw-colored Chardonnay from Oregon opens with a toasted coconut and almond butter bouquet with hints of lemon zest, lychee, and pine wood shavings. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. It is balanced, clean and has rounded edges. The flavor profile is pineapple and lemon blend with notes of vanilla, oak, and coconut. We also detected hints of almond, key lime pie and ginger ale. It is pretty complex. The finish is dry, and its acidity and flavors linger nicely. The Panel would pair this Chard with seared diver scallops, coconut grilled shrimp or shrimp or linguini in a lemon and garlic cream sauce. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Aromas: Gravenstein apple, buttermilk biscuits, Chrysanthemum, and summer rain.
Flavors: Nashi pear, zebra gum, wet river rock, and nectarine.
Texture: Light and lithe, yet broad and satiny with superb focus
