Wine Review: This white gold colored Chardonnay from Gundlach Bundschu opens with a pear and banana crème bouquet with hints of oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and nicely balanced between its pleasant acidity and fruit. The flavor profile is a mild mineral infused pear with notes of new oak and pineapple. I also detected hints of almond. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for quite some time. This Chard is food friendly and versatile. It would pair well with a chicken, broccoli and penne casserole. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: We craft our Chardonnay in a food-friendly, focused style, with minimal new oak influences. Accented by 40+ year old heritage vines on the Rhinefarm estate, this wine offers elegance, varietal authenticity and beautiful acidity. Pair with fresh pasta tossed with spinach and cream sauce and seafood with lemon and capers.

Organic status: not organic
