Wine Review: This pretty yellow wine has a pleasant bouquet of orange, banana and pineapple with some floral notes. It has a medium body, is round and dry with bright acidity. Its flavor profile is pear, grapefruit and baking spice with notes of integrated minerality and gentle oak. The finish lingers nicely with some citrus notes. I would pair this Chardonnay with Maryland crab cakes. - Mark

Winemaker Notes: Our Sonoma Coast Chardonnay is brimming with apple, citrus, lemongrass and a hint of pineapple with a core of bright acidity and a long toasty finish. The barrel fermented portion of this wine was in new French oak creating toasty vanilla and spice complexities in the wine. We regularly stirred the lees during the 10 months of barrel aging to add richness and texture. The remaining portion was cold fermented in stainless steel, where malolactic fermentation brought additional character. Enjoy this wine now or over the next 2 to 4 years with soft cheeses, seafood or chicken salad.
