Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chard is a very nice offering from Navarro. It opens with a mild green apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a gentle green pear with a touch of lemon. The finish is dry and quite refreshing. This is a food friendly Chard that would pair well with lemon thyme chicken off the grill. Try some this summer. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The aromas are bright suggesting white spring flowers. The grape flavors are green apple and pear with just a hint of butter from the secondary fermentation. The roundness from aging sur lie in oak casks is adorned with an intriguing garnish of candied kumquats.

Organic status: not organic
