Wine Review: This Chardonnay has a bright greenish yellow, brassy appearance in the glass and opens with dried straw and sawmill aromas. On the palate, this wine has layered tropical flavors of grilled pineapple, guava and cantaloupe. It is complex but not fussy, with flint minerals and saline to add texture and balance. The wine finishes with some caramel notes but thins out at the end. It would pair well with a sage brown butter ravioli dish. - Jeoff

Winemaker Notes: Bright citrus, apricot, and honeydew scents. Yellow plum, tropical fruit, crisp apple, and baking spice flavors. A rich mouthfeel plus juicy acidity.
