Wine Review: This white gold colored un-oaked Chard opens with an Anjou pear bouquet with a hint of lime. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, creamy, and fruit forward. The flavor profile is green apple with a touch of mango and minerality mixed in. The finish is dry and pleasantly refreshing. If you like fruit forward Chardonnay, this offering might be a good everyday option for you. I would pair it with a Cuban sandwich. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The nose is like walking through a blossoming Meyer lemon orchard, a spring stream running over wet cobblestones in the background, and a hint of lemon meringue pie. Fresh and vibrant, the wine builds in body and texture as it sits in your mouth. Kaffir lime, guava, pineapple and a note of flint flow in first, then the light creamy texture of lemon curd fills in the flavor palete. The finish is clean and crisp, lingering enough to make you want another sip…go ahead, we'll make more next year, don't worry.
