Wine Review: This pale gold colored Chardonnay opens with an attractive mild pear and melon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a gentle pear with notes of banana and hint of peach. The finish is dry and elegant. The panel suggested pairing this tasty Chard with broiled scallops in butter or baked haddock with a lemon butter drizzle. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Pale honey in appearance the nose delivers notes of honeysuckle and quince followed by passion fruit and butterscotch. Mirroring its aromas, honeysuckle and quince flavors lead into hints of pear and passion fruit for a long and elegant finish.
