Wine Review: This pale straw colored Chardonnay opens with mild wet stone, lemon and faint pineapple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, balanced, smooth, and elegant. The flavor profile is a gentle light lemon verbena and mild mineral blend with notes of gentle oak and green apple. I also detected hints of creme brulee and a touch anise. The finish is dry and very refined. This Chardonnay is very food friendly and would pair well with many foods. While not overly complex, it will appeal to many readers. I would pair it with chicken francese. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The wines of 2013 at Seven Springs exhibit a classical, elegant restraint that we love. Vibrant acidity and some richness provide a counterpoint to the purity of fruit. Made in the traditional Burgundian style, this is a graceful, pretty Chardonnay to enjoy while you practice patience on La Source and Summum. Aromas of lemon rind, pear, and mint, with hints of toasted sesame seeds and melon. Leaner than the 2012 but with enough richness to give it an extra dimension. The essence of raw pineapple and a sustained lemony fruit core finishes with a vibrant acidity.
