Wine Review: This deep yellow colored Chardonnay is not for everyone, but fans of this style will love it. It opens with a vanilla, toasty oak, and ripe Bartlett pear bouquet with hints of shortbread cookies. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, rich, and round. The flavor profile is strong oak influenced baked Bartlett pear with notes butter and hazelnut. (We also picked up some hints of green tea and mango. The finish is long and its oak driven flavors linger and last for quite some time. The Panel would generally recommend drinking this Chard on its own. With food they would pair it with a peach cobbler or with brie with crusty warm French bread. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Pale light yellow with a green hue. Aromas of ripe peach, honeydew, and lemon rind intertwine seamlessly with vanilla and spice. The aromas are followed by flavors of lychee and yellow peach which meld perfectly with the cream texture, vanilla, and slight butter. The finish builds with more peach and spice, while the acidity maintains the freshness and structure. The wine will continue to gain weight and depth over the next 12 months, revealing additional notes of nectarine, butter, and spice.
