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.

Sweetness than I expected, which was a joy. Super buttery! Nice, subtle, crisp green apple.
Dry. Hints of raisin, sweet spice.
Scents of vanilla, pear, yellow melon.

Tastes watered down, and sweet. Easy to drink, but not my style.

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