Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chard opens with a very fragrant and attractive banana, oak, and peppermint bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is an oak influenced lemon and banana. The finish is dry and lingers nicely. I felt that this Chard would pair well with a hearty dish like pasta carbonara. This wine is mostly available at restaurants or you can order direct from the winery online. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Floral aromas of lavender, honey and honeysuckle give way to white peach and tropical aromas of mango and pineapple. Spice notes of vanilla and cinnamon bark accent those of pie crust, toasted bread and caramel. This chardonnay has a bright vibrant acidity that is fresh and youthful. Citrus flavors of lemon pie filling and lime are complimented by Fuji apple, pear and white cherries. A touch of caramel leads to an amazingly long lemon Jolly Rancher finish for a very refreshing wine.
