Wine Review: This very rich yellow colored Chardonnay really impressed us. It opens with a fragrant lemon custard like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, well balanced, and very creamy. The flavor profile is a ripe pear with notes of cantaloupe. I also detected a touch of apricot and lemon in this complex Chard. The finish is dry and it is nicely refreshing. This very tasty Chard would be a wonderful complement to shrimp scampi or lobster with drawn butter. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A bouquet filled with honey suckle, lychee nut, baked apples, crème brûlée, orange blossoms, apricot and lime zest. The rich entry cascades into great acidity, minerality, sweet tropical and citrus fruit.

Organic status: not organic
