Wine Review: This Chardonnay opens with a very fragrant ripe green apple bouquet with notes of lemon and hints of pineapple and quinine. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, lively and crispier than most Chardonnays. The flavor profile is a blend of green apple and Bartlett pear with a good dose of white pepper mixed in. There is also a touch of mild oak in the background. The finish is dry and its mild acidity lingers a bit after the wine is gone. This wine would pair well with pasta carbonara. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Color: golden straw Aroma: Asian pear, butter crust apple tart tatin, juicy golden pineapple, guava, Meyer Lemon, orange blossom, honeysuckle, hints of toasted hazelnut Taste: sweet focused entry opens to a fleshy, round, and bright mid-palate, notes of citrus, cream filled profiteroles with spun sugar, and a clean mineral driven finish.
