Wine Review: This translucent straw-colored Chardonnay opens with a crisp pineapple, green apple and lemon bouquet with hints of light honey, oak and herbs. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with nicely balanced acidity. It is also smooth and creamy. The flavor profile is a blend of pineapple, green apple and light vanilla oak with hints of butter. I also detected a touch of herbs mixed in. This easy-going Chardonnay finishes slightly dry with some a little grapefruit appearing. I would pair this good value Chard with a marinated grilled chicken breast topped with melted provolone cheese. - Joe

Winemaker Notes: Pineapple, mango and peach aromas lead to juicy fruit flavors of ripe peach, sweet spices, pineapple, basically loaded with tropical fruit notes. The blend of the two Chardonnay lots adds both fruit forward qualities and a creamy texture. Highlighted by bright acidity, the wine finishes clean and refreshing.

Organic status: not organic
