Bright gold in the glass. White flowers and banana on the plump nose. Full body. Banana, white peach, and that Viognier darkness on the palate. Medium acidity. Average finish when chilled. Mostly simple with a complex thread thanks to the other varieties (Chenin Blanc, Malvasia Bianco, Viognier). Take it on a picnic.

15.5/20 (87/100)

Цвет золотистый. Аромат сильный, сладко-цитрусовый, лимоны в сахаре, сладкие пряности, банан, сладко-цветочные тона. Чуть алкогольно, кефирные тона, ряженка. Интересно. Кислотность свежая, белый изюм, Послевкусие несколько алкогольно.

Slightly acidic. Good for the price. Notes of crisp apple and warm honey.

Simply good Cali Chardonnay at a reasonable price. Has everything you would expect in tropical notes and cleansing medium length finish.
