On the nose the wine displays vanilla and spice, ripe red apple and a touch of lees on the finish.
On the palate the wine is savory, complex
and satisfying, a touch of minerality, tarragon and vanilla. Definitely a food wine.
Pair this wine with roast chicken,
crab cakes, salmon, halibut, lobster, grilled mushrooms, fava beans and buttered corn.
"With appealing pineapple, orange, pear and green apple flavors enhanced with the vanilla and buttered toast of oak, this is a delicious Chardonnay. Its bright acidity makes it clean and mouthwatering. It's as good as the winery's more expensive Chards, making it a relative bargain. Production was 4,200 cases.
