Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2009 Chardonnay displays great varietal character in its light gold color, rich aromas and well-balanced flavors. Fragrant pear, green apple and citrus grace the nose, dusted by a hint of oak and light floral notes. The palate is round and supple, with good structure and a fine balance of ripe fruits, bright acids and oak spices. A bite of citrus lingers in the mouth for a crisp, clean finish. Pair this food friendly wine with seafood or poultry.
