Wine Review: I enjoyed this Reserve Chardonnay from Angeline. The fruity cantaloupe and pineapple bouquet was enticing and included a touch of oak and vanilla. It is very food friendly with a pale straw color and a light to medium body. A round structure, pleasant balance with French oak barrel aging gives this Chardonnay its inviting character. Along with the light French oak, the palate includes a smooth creamy citrus fruit of tangerine and pink grapefruit including nice acidity. The finish is delightful and slightly extended. This coastal California Chardonnay would go nicely with scallops wrapped in bacon. – Joe

Winemaker Notes: This Chardonnay has a delicious bouquet of ripe golden pear, tropical pineapple, and sweet honeydew melon, along with aromatic apple blossom, and creamy vanilla bean. The carefully chosen, lightly impactful French oak serves to convey a perceived sweetness that is perfectly balanced by the clean acidity around the edges of the palate. Although deceivingly full bodied, the wine maintains a juicy mouthfeel and a clean, concise finish.

Organic status: not organic
