Wine Review: This white gold colored Chardonnay from Australia is Excellent. It opens with a ripe pear bouquet with hints of tangerine. On the palate, this wine medium bodied, balanced and refined. The flavor profile is a delicious tangerine and pear blend with notes of pineapple. I also detected hints lemon verbena and touch of minerality. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Chardonnay is very food friendly. I would pair terrific Chard with seafood casserole. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A youthful and expressive nose that features pears, white nectarines and lime flesh. Higher notes of jasmine and frangipani provide lift, fragrance and energy. Beneath lies a myriad of toasted sesame, vanilla pod, cinnamon quill and cardamom. A tight, seamless and elegant palate highlighted with figs, quince and lemon skin opens towards a delicately textured and contoured mid palate. Blanched almonds and hazelnuts weave through the primary fruits and textural layers, leading to a long and defined finish.
