Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a mild green apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mild pear with notes of gentle vanilla oak. I also detected a hint of butterscotch and white pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors are slightly prolonged and drift away nicely. This Chardonnay is very food friendly and would pair well with the farmer's market chicken carbonara from Not Your Average Joe's. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This bright and appealing style of Chardonnay accentuates freshness and varietal fruit, rather than secondary aromas from extensive malolactic fermentation and new oak aging. The nose is zesty with lemon drop, peach and orange blossom aromas, with hints of caramel, lemon curd and nutmeg adding a complex backdrop. The palate has vivid nectarine, tropical fruit and apple flavors all beautifully balanced by clean, crisp acidity and a delicate sweetness.
