What a wonderful example of a clean, balanced unoaked Chard. You can really taste the unique characteristics of the fruit. Another winner for Wynne!

I used to sell a lot of this waiting tables some years ago. Now I remember why.

Nice summer wine. Chardonnay isn't going to be aromatic, but this one offers a good representation of what the grape can do without oak. Nice acidity. Great for a summer evening sip and lighter foods.

Fine with food. But lacking structure.

Lemon, lime, and pineapple exuberant on the nose, with hints of river stones and flaky pastry. Bright and full, with lemons and pears constructing the profile of the wine. Great on a 90+ degrees day in the Willamette Valley. #thankschampagne

Normally I prefer oaked, but this was crisp, light and paired well with Indian food
