Quick Overview

Tasting Note


Light golden yellow in the glass, this Chardonnay brings power and rich textured complexity to the glass. Delicious aromas of ripe apple and juicy pear on the nose wrapped in warm butter. These savory aromas are echoed on the palate in addition to a squeeze of citrus and an edge of minerality with a hint of butterscotch. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for a long time after the wine is gone. It is a wonderful full-bodied yet balanced Chardonnay experience.
