Wine Review: This pale straw colored Chardonnay from Cambria opens with a mild oak influenced apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and on the rich side. The flavor profile is a new oak and Anjou pear blend with notes of mild caramel. The finish is dry and its flavors drift away nicely. This Chard will be a crowd pleaser with readers who like the traditional oak styled Chard. I would pair it with roasted chicken and wild mushroom ravioli with butter and parmesan sauce. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2013 Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay features lively fruit and oak spice aromas supported by citrus, white peach and apple flavors on the palate. Nicely weighted through the mid-palate, the finish is bright and crisp. Try our Katherine's Vineyard Chardonnay with crab and lobster, shrimp, fried calamari, and grilled salmon.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
