Wine Review: This yellow colored Chard opens with an attractive tropical fruit like bouquet. On the palate, this medium bodied wine shows some acidity and is livelier than most Chards. The flavor profile is lime with a touch of light oak and other citrus flavors. The finish is dry and refreshing. This Chard would appeal to readers who like Sauvignon Blanc. The panel would pair this wine with linguine with a white clam sauce. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The Sonoma Coast Ovation Chardonnay is similar in style to the classic Ovation but differs in structure and ripeness. This wine has a concentrated core of lemon, fig and cream, with natural acidity and minerality that give it great strength and persistence. This a naturally made wine that is unfined, unfiltered, and an expression of the region’s characteristic minerality and spice.
