The 2011 Chardonnay from McManis Family Vineyards, has a vibrant hue, and is light straw in color. The nose of the wine is a beautiful gallimaufry of pear, peach, lychee and tropical fruit. Notes of Vanilla and toast are contributed from French Oak aging. A richly textured offering of melon, Pear and Pinapple flavors are palpable in the mouth. The finish is long, filled with the tastes previously mentioned and has a nice acidity that invites another drink.
