Wine Review: This yellow colored Chardonnay opens with an oak, apple and lemon like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, nicely balanced and super smooth. The flavor profile is a vanilla oak influenced pear with notes of lemon. I also picked up some hints ginger. The finish is dry and its flavors are nicely prolonged. This Chard was popular with all that tried it. I would pair it with chicken cordon bleu. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Lush tropical fruit intertwines with lemon, lime and floral notes. Elegantly layered, this wine exhibits a rich texture and firm backbone with a hint of vanilla and spice to round out the long finish.

Organic status: not organic
