Wine Review: This light straw colored Chardonnay from Napa is very nice. It opens with a pleasant and attractive Bosc pear bouquet with a hint of apple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic, mouthwatering and fresh. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused green apple with hints of lemon melon and pear. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Chard is very food friendly and would pair well with chicken piccata. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Fermented and aged mostly in stainless steel, this approachable style showcases the fruit purity and true essence of Napa Valley Chardonnay in a great vintage. This wine displays aromas of melons, Bartlett pear, and acacia flower followed on the palate by flavors of granny smith apple, banana, kiwi, spearmint, a touch of creaminess and fresh acidity.

Organic status: not organic
