No new oak means this 100% Chardonnay is fresh and zesty with pineapple and yellow apple flavors. They are accompanied by a well balanced acidity and off-dry sweetness. Paired nicely with crispy salmon and wasabi ginger bok choy rice. ($9) [8/17/16]

I would call it old world in style for sure. Reserved oak allowing the fruit and minerality to take center stage

No new oak, partial barrel fermentation. Aged sur lie. Still shows good fruit while be acid-balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Another bargain.

bright apples and cream, neither buttery nor oaky. Great food wine! Paired nicely with chicken lasagne and Greek salad.

Clean and crisp edges. Something akin to a Macon.

More of a gimmick than anything else. It's a bitter Chardonnay that pretends to benefit from the influence of oak. I'm sure it'll sell just fine though...

Solid, solid chard for the money. Not creamy or buttery, like a macon-village with a little less acid. This would be a great house white.
