This wine has a bright lemon-gold color with aromas of baked apple, poached pear, mango and melon. On the palate, it has bright acidity and a round, creamy mouthfeel. Filled with rich flavors of baked apple pie, caramel, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg, delicate honey over a spicy finish.
This Chardonnay blends the forward fruit flavors of fresh pears, ripe peaches and apricot making this the perfect wine to serve with grilled chicken breast pasta salad, roasted red snapper with sprigs of rosemary or grilled pork loin. Shaved Reggiano parmesan and pesto over your favorite pasta is also an ideal companion to this wine.
88 Points ("very good") - The Tasting Panel, Anthony Dias Blue (December 2009)
"Silky and juicy with bright, ripe fruit that is clean and smooth; crisp, lively and balanced."
