Wine Review: This yellow colored Chardonnay is amazingly consistent from year to year. This year’s version opens with a fragrant oak and lemon custard bouquet with a hint of mango. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, slightly acidic, yet round. The flavor profile is a very tasty vanilla oak infused lemon with a hint of pineapple. The finish is dry and its mild oak notes are subtle and pleasant. This Chard is extremely popular for a reason and would pair very well with chicken cordon bleu. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Beautifully integrated tropical flavors such as pineapple, mango, and papaya with citrus notes that explode in your mouth. These flavors delicately intertwine with aromas of vanilla and honey to create depth and balance throughout. A hint of toasted oak rounds out the long, lingering finish. - Randy Ullom, Winemaster
