The nose is packed with rich flavors of marmalade, kumquat, ripe peach and orange butter.
The palate is unctuous with the kumquat character pushing through the layers of yellow
peach, butterscotch and a hint of green apple. The finish has a touch of lemon acidity with
a lingering orange rind character. This sweet wine can be served with dessert, cheese, fresh
fruit, or drizzled over vanilla ice cream.
"th the number of really good dessert wines available for under $12 per bottle severely limited, this is a refreshing ray of golden sweetness. Dried apricots add enough citrus pith to partially balance out the intensely sweet flavors. Drink in the lusciousness over the next couple of years."
"Medium yellow-gold. Reticent aromas and flavors of pineapple, apricot and tangerine. Sweet but a bit alcoholic on the palate, with gentle acidity, strong honeyed tones and moderately deep pit fruit flavors. A tad warm on the back but this offers very good value for a late-harvest wine."
International Wine Cellar
"Deep gold in color and honeyed in its sweetness, this chardonnay's richness is balanced by fresh acidity. An appealing sticky for a cheese plate or a savory peach tart."
