Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chard opens with a pretty banana and golden delicious apple like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and nicely balanced with a fruit forward style. The flavor profile is a tasty light oak infused pineapple with notes of apricot and peach. We found this Chard to be very easy to drink and enjoy. Its finish is dry and its fruit flavors linger nicely in the aftertaste. This wine would pair well with five fruit grilled chicken. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This wine has all the elements of a classic Chardonnay. The fruit aromas of fresh sliced apple and Asian pear are complimented with citrus notes of lime zest, grapefruit and Meyer lemon and a floral touch of honeysuckle and orange blossom. In the mouth, it is lush, round and creamy with support from a firm acid structure that creates excellent balance. Fruit flavors of lemon curd, lime, Asian pear and baked apple fold into shortbread, candied pecans and marmalade that is touched with toasty oak before the long finish of sweet key lime.
