Wine Review: My sister would love this wine. It is pale yellow colored and opens with a mild apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a very tasty semi-sweet lemon-lime with notes of ripe red apple. The finish is pleasant and nicely refreshing. Enjoy it with apple pie. Cheers - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Naked...Nude...In The Buff...and showing the true expression of the Chardonnay grape. Controlled fermentation in cold stainless steel tanks (no oak barrels) brings out freshly squeezed aromas and tropical flavors. This artistic label was designed by the internationally renowned graphic artist Raphael Boguslav, 80, and is a play on the classic 18th century French painting "La Verite" (the Truth). Enjoy in your favorite picnic attire or simply In The Buff.
