Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has all the elements of a classic chardonnay. The fruit aromas of fresh sliced apple and Asian pear are complimented with citrus notes of lime zest, grapefruit and Meyer lemon and a floral touch of honeysuckle and orange blossom. In the mouth, it is lush, round and creamy with support from a firm acid structure that creates excellent balance. Fruit flavors of lemon curd, lime, Asian pear and baked apple fold into shortbread, candied pecans and marmalade that is touched with toasty oak before the long finish of sweet key lime.
