Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay from down under opens with a mild apple bouquet with a hint of butter rum Life Saver. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and savory. The flavor profile is a tasty butter rum with integrated pear and new oak. The finish is dry and its oak laced flavors linger nicely after the wine is gone. This wine would pair nicely with three cheese spinach ravioli with a light butter cream sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Chardonnay has been made to be crisp with fresh fruit characters and soft oak that will allow some maturation if required. The color is medium yellow with touches of grapey green. The aroma is emphasized by melon and fresh citrus fruits with a hint of soft French oak. The flavors are smooth with lingering melon fruits and subtle oak enhancing the varietal flavors, without overpowering them.
