Wine Review: This yellow colored Chardonnay from Stemmler opens with an apple bouquet with a hint of honey. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and has a creamy mouth feel. Yet it also shows a little acidity as well. The flavor profile is an oak infused pear and apple blend with a touch of caramel. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Chard is food friendly and would pair well with chicken cordon bleu. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Ripe mouth-watering Granny Smith apple and rich lemony aromas combine with scents of citrus blossom and honeysuckle in the seductive nose of this Chardonnay. This heavyweight wine has a depth of melon engulfed in a fleshy texture with undertones of citrus and a long mineral finish.
