Wine Review: This deep gold colored Chardonnay opens with a new oak and Bosc pear bouquet with hints of toasted coconut, butter cream, brioche, and gentle florals. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with integrated acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, delicate, and creamy. The flavor profile is a gentle pineapple and chalky minerality blend with notes of oak and Anjou pear. We also detected some hints of lemon and peach pit. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this versatile Chard with coquille St. Jacques. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Lush tropical fruit intertwines with nice minerality from the calciferous soils in the Santa Maria and Los Alamos Valleys. There is a touch of floral notes from the small amounts of Dijon and Rued clones, and a hint of vanilla and spice to round out the rich, long finish.
