Wine Review: This yellow colored Chardonnay from the Paul Hobbs opens with an inviting mild oak, faint butterscotch and pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and displays plus acidity. The flavor profile is a green apple and oak blend with notes of minerality and pineapple. I also detected hints of cantaloupe and butter towards the end. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and lasted for quite some time. This Chard would pair well with lobster pot pie. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Chard exhibits a youthful pale straw color in the glass and aromas of tangerine, white florals, and shaved ginger. Lively flavors of white peach and Gravenstein apple emerge on the palate that give way to complex flavors of baking spice and pie crust that add a round texture to accompany its bright acidity, framing the long finish. Unfined and unfiltered. Pair with Gruyere cheese or pan seared scallops with soft herbs.
