Wine Review: This yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a faint lemon and pineapple bouquet with a hint of teaberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty pear and pineapple blend with hints of mild oak and pecan. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Chard is food friendly and would pair nicely with a mild dish. I would pair it with Imperial stuffed halibut with bay scallops or Oregon pink shrimp Dungeness crab. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Lush tropical fruit intertwines with lemon, lime and floral notes. Elegantly layered, this wine exhibits a rich texture and firm backbone with a hint of vanilla and spice to round out the long finish.
