Winemaker's Notes

Citrus driven nose. Hints of matchstick, pineapple, banana and coconut. Soft and round entry. Oak is apparent but not defining. Mid-palate goes on to reveal other layers of flavors - vanilla, lemon meringue pie, and again coconut. Finish is rich with viscosity that coats the mouth for minutes after your last sip.

Very typical (and well made) Chardonnay from this region. It's a big one, with lots of oak and variety of flavors. The aroma leaves something to be desired--but the actual taste is very nice. If you like big chards, this is the ticket at an affordable price.
