Wine Review: This pale gold colored Chardonnay from Massican opens with a pineapple and oak bouquet with hints of lemon, lychee, and gardenia. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with integrated medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced, round, seamless, and fresh for Chard. The flavor profile is saline and gentle pineapple blend with notes of light oak, lychee, and chalky minerality. We also detected some hints of tarragon, lemon oil, and green apple with a touch of mango. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity show nice length. The Tasting Panel would pair this versatile Chard with chicken francese or with bay scallop chowder. Enjoy – KWGTP
