Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a faint apple bouquet with a hint of banana. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and round. The flavor profile is a mild orange cream saver with hints of green apple, lemon and faint vanilla oak. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. This Chard would pair well with a baked Dover sole. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This refreshing Chardonnay erupts with captivating layers of pineapple, bright green apple and fresh Meyer lemon, juicy pear and wildflowers. It shows refreshing acidity and sleek mineral notes which are balanced by a rounded mid-palate and a long, pure fruit finish.
