The color is straw with the slightest green cast, which is reminiscent of the color of the skins on freshly picked Chardonnay grapes. In the glass the wine shows exquisite aromas of green apple, lemon, and acacia that dominate the nose and carry through to the palate. In the mouth are flavors of guava, pineapple, and pear mixed with creamy yeast and roasted nut notes that are kept in check by a vibrant acidity. The subtle wood notes lend structure to the blend and lead to a long and refreshing finish.
This stylish approach to Chardonnay is best paired with medium-weight cuisine and is an especially pleasing partner to avocado-based dishes, spicy southeast Asian cuisine and light pastas.
Blend: 99% Chardonnay and 1% Viognier
