Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chardonnay was well received by our mini-tasting group. It opens with a mild apple bouquet with a hint of pineapple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and very approachable. The flavor profile is a tasty apple with hints of pear, melon and pineapple. The finish is dry and its flavors linger well after the wine is gone. I would pair this wine with Chicken St. Timothy. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Chardonnay is bursting with luscious fruit aromas of baked apple, pear, nectarine and pineapple, as well as additional notes of orange blossom, lemon zest, vanilla creme brulee and fresh-baked piecrust. Ripe fruit flavors of pineapple and peach dominate the palate. This lush fruit is beautifully framed by vibrant acidity and well-integrated oak, which adds nuances of honey, brioche and spice, as well as hints of nutmeg and clove. The finish is exceptionally long, with the acidity adding focus to the generous fruit.
