Aromas of honeysuckle, butterscotch and vanilla; ripe apple flavor with the subtle spice of cinnamon. An elegant mid-palate and a creamy texture with balanced acid and soft tannins.
The grapes for this wine were whole cluster pressed, to preserve abundant fruit flavors. After a short settling period, the clear juice was racked to French oak barrels for fermentation. The wine was aged on the fermentation lees for five months with regular stirring to re-suspend the lees and make a rounder, more complex wine.
This Chardonnay pairs readily with a variety of foods including fresh fruit, aged cheeses, green salads, llighter pasta, poultry, pork and seafood.
This is a very enjoyable straight forward smooth Chardonnay. It has plenty of fruit and butter without heavy oak. Enjoy it this summer with fruit salad, cheeses and fish. Or, drink it solo.
I always lean look for Sonoma Valley or Napa Valley when I buy Chardonnay. I like an oak flavor and I've never been disappointed.
my wife stated she liked this very much and would buy again.
Just your average, low priced chardonnary. A little on the "hot" side, creating lack of balance. Flavor profile flat. 85 rating.
Someone must have paid off wine and spirits for giving this a 91 rating...perhaps an 81. Very disjointed and lacking any real flavor profile...besides blah! Very dissapointing.
