Review date: April 15, 2015

Wine Review: This light yellow colored Chardonnay opens with a wet stone and pear like bouquet with a hint of banana. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, mildly acidic and nicely coats your mouth. The flavor profile is a mineral infused pear with hints of gentle oak, honey and clementine. The finish is dry and nicely refreshing. I would serve this food friendly Chard with shrimp scampi. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is a concentrated, lush and elegant wine, exhibiting flavors of ripe nectarine, white peach, vanilla and citrus. A hint of Asian pear and honeyed oak add a layer of complexity and elevate the flavor profile of this delightfully crisp and well-structured gem.

Organic status: not organic
