Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a new oak and Meyer lemon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with nicely integrated acidity. The flavor profile is a tasty lemon and light oak blend with notes of faint pineapple and Honeydew melon. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity show very nice length. I would pair this impressive Chardonnay with chicken tortellini with a light cream sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2017 offers lush, luxurious aromas and flavors of melon, honeysuckle, apricot, pineapple and flint all held together with effortless structure, elegant balance, and energy that comes from pure, Chablis-like acidity.
