Wine Review: This medium gold colored Chardonnay opens with a lemon verbena and matchstick bouquet with a hint of pineapple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is round, slightly viscous, balanced, and bright. The flavor profile is a chalky mineral influenced lime and green apple blend with notes of white pepper and other citrus fruits. I also detected hints of saline in the mix. The finish is dry and refreshing. This wine is food friendly and classy. It would be a nice accompaniment to a summer dinner on the porch. Pair it with grilled swordfish. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine is bright, with a slightly golden hue. It has a generous and distinctive nose; pear-like with a touch of stone fruit (apricot), lemon/lime, and mineral. It has a rich and crisp palate, rounded edges and is smooth throughout, especially the finish.
