Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chard was well received at a recent charity event that we attended. It opens with an attractive mild pineapple bouquet with hints of red apple and spice. The flavor profile is a tasty mild oak and Bartlett pear. There was also a touch of unripe pineapple and hint of mineral notes mixed in that added to its character. The finish is dry and slightly crisp with a touch of lingering oak. I would pair this Chard with chicken ravioli in a creamy mushroom sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: From its lemon-green color to its aromas of Bartlett pear, Meyer lemon peel, hard lemon candy, clove and honeysuckle, this wine offers a captivating first impression. On the palate, it is lushly textured and full-bodied, displaying flavors of poached pear and lime custard, alongside brown baking spices and Stuhlmuller Vineyard's signature wet stone minerality.
