Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) This graceful Chardonnay opens with aromas of peach, yellow apple, spice and a pleasing sweet cream vanilla note. The wine has a soft entry with citrus and light honey notes that lead to a lingering sweet lemon finish.

    This crisp and fresh Chardonnay opens with aromas of orange blossom, lemon oil and toasted brioche with sweet cream apple butter. "Medium" on the richness scale, KARIA charms with its balance of ripe fruit, understated barrel spice, mouth-filling texture and refreshing acidity. The palate is loaded with flavors of ripe stone fruit and apple blossom that lead to a persistent citrus and spice infused finish. Try pairing this wine with a fresh goat cheese salad drizzled with honey and toasted almonds, Dungeness crab cakes or garlic-studded roast chicken.

    (2005 Vintage) Rating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Shy at first, it opens to reveal lovely aromas of peach, hazelnut, mineral and crème brûlée. Texturally it is silky, creamy and absolutely charming. Good acidity supports its flavours of peach, melon, spice and vanilla. At its best over the next two years
