Winemaker's Notes

Only 30% of this Chardonnay spends time in oak barrels, the other 70% is fermented in stainless steel tanks. Less oak influence gives this Chardonnay bright clean fruit flavors and less buttery characteristics. It is bright yellow in color with green highlights; this Premium Chardonnay is a fresh and lively wine. Aromas of tropical fruits with a delicate toasted bread note. On the palate the wine is velvety, round and full-bodied with a long, lingering finish. Enjoy this wine with fresh seafood salads, white fish with lemons & capers, roasted herbed chicken and mild cheeses.

I would barely be able to drink this if served it by someone. Drank it on my own dime, here at home, but wasn't happy about it and poured the last glass down the drain. MUCH prefer Edna Valley, Toasted Head, Shannon Ridge and Rodney strong to this mess.
