Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from Kendal Jackson opens with a mild pineapple bouquet with a hint of anise and faint tangerine. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, well balanced and crisp. The flavor profile is a tasty mild Anjou pear with hints of tangerine and pineapple. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. This wine is a very nice summer option and would be perfect with grilled swordfish skewers off the grill. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This refreshing Chardonnay bursts with intriguing layers of fresh pineapple, bright green apple, crisp Meyer lemon, juicy pear and wildflowers. The wine's refreshing acidity and sleek mineral notes are balanced by a rounded mid-palate and long, pure fruit finish.
