Wine Review: This pale-straw colored Chardonnay from Three Sticks opens with a gentle pineapple and pear bouquet with hints of apple butter, gentle oak, and almond. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with gentle integrated acidity. The mouthfeel is soft, elegant, and bright. The flavor profile is a crusted stone and gentle lemon blend with notes of Asian pear and white pepper. We also detected hints of white grapefruit, integrated oak, and vanilla. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Chard with a pan-seared halibut with a garlic crab topping, Dover sole, or with pan-seared sea scallops. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Alana Chardonnay is known for its elegant profile of acacia flower and the 2019 vintage offers notes of guava, pineapple, and baked apple tart. This bottling boasts a creamy, almost honeycomb quality in perfect balance with its acidity, influenced by the salinity of nearby breezes.
