Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chard was very well received by our mini group. It opens with a mild Anjou pear bouquet with a hint of banana. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, and very well balanced, between its mild acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a delicious mild green apple with hints of creamy butter and light oak. The finish is dry and it is a bit tingly it lingers for a while. We felt this Chard would be a very nice option to pair with chicken cordon bleau. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of tropical fruit, fresh pear, and citrus; with hints of fig, vanilla, and nutmeg. The mouth has a creamy texture; filled with flavors of green apple, lime, and hazelnut. Firm acidity provides a crisp finish of lemon zest, mineral, and toasted oak.

Organic status: not organic
