Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a fragrant apple and pear bouquet with a hint of banana. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and nicely balanced between its fruit and acidity. It also has a nice round mouthfeel. The flavor profile is a mild apple with notes of gentle oak and banana. I also detected a hint of melon. The finish is dry and its flavors linger nicely. This Chard is very food friendly and versatile. It would pair well with trout almondine. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This bright and alluring Chardonnay offers abundant layers of citrus, white peach, and melon, as well as hints of honeysuckle. On the palate, lovely pure fruit notes are underscored by crisp acidity and a lovely supple quality from sur lie aging.
