Wine Review: This very pale straw-colored Chardonnay from Rodney Strong opens with a fresh pineapple and ripe pear bouquet with hints of white florals. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and delicate. The flavor profile is a tasty pineapple and lemon verbena blend with notes of light oak and green apple. I also detected hints of saline, green tea, and poached pear. The finish is refreshing for a Chard. This Chard has quaffing potential and would be nice at the beach. Serve it slightly chilled. With food it would pair nicely with fried clam strips or fried scallops. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Lemon pie and custard aromas mix with exotic quince and layers of creamy oak in our 2020 Chalk Hill Chardonnay. Bright green apple and a citrusy lemon kick balance out the smooth oak tones. The creamy mouthfeel leads to a bright finish of grapefruit zest and hints of tart apple. Enjoy this now with soft cheeses or simply with good company.
