Wine Review: This Chardonnay is always one of our favorites every year and it seems to fly under the radar. Shock your friends and show up with a bottle or two at your next dinner party. They will be very impressed. It is yellow colored and opens with a fragrant and attractive Bartlett pear and mild oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, well balanced, and creamy. The flavor profile is a delicious mild green apple with notes of mild oak with hints of mineral and green melon mixed in. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. I would serve this Chard cool and with chicken ravioli with a mushroom cream sauce. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The aromas display a seductive orange blossom element with hints of hazelnut and buttered toast. The flavors are a refined mix of Asian pear and Key lime layered with spicy French oak. We have less than half our normal production so this beauty will sell out early.
