Wine Review: This pale straw-colored Chardonnay from the Leeuwin Estate opens with a ripe pineapple and toasted almond bouquet with hints of pear, light oak, and honeysuckle. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, slightly viscous, and bright for a Chard. The flavor profile is an oak influenced Bartlett pear with notes of pineapple and apricot. We also detected hints of butterscotch and lemon. The finish is dry, and its flavors and pleasant acidity show very nice length. The Tasting Panel would pair this Chard with a chicken and wild mushroom ravioli smothered with a butter cream sauce. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Bright, aromatic, and varietal cut lime, pear and nectarine. Jasmine and frangipani notes give heightened subtleties to the fruit spectrum. Cashew, almond meal, popcorn, chamomile create a gorgeous centre to the nose. Vibrant and ethereal palate - great direction with shape and frame. Energetic and lively citrus fruits meets saline acidity. Gentle nuances of hazelnut, and sweet spice add a complementary layer and contour to the palate.
