Mike Grgich, the “King of Chardonnay” farms w/o pesticides and certified organic. Aged 10 months and did not undergo malolactic fermentation. Pale gold straw with soft aromas of stone & tropical fruits. On the palate apple, melon & tropical flavors, with some vanilla toasty oak notes. Nice balance with acidity on lingering finish with a zingy mineral ending. Not your typical CA Chard, very nice!

Apple, toasted almond, pithy lemon, honey, hay and oak. Great acidity and balance.

Beautiful nuances of apple, pear, butter and nuts. Oak isn't too overpowering. Medium acidity and body. Almost like drinking a white Burgundy; maybe even better.

Lovely gold color with aromas of pear and lemon. Creamy in the mouth with non-oaked flavors that finish short. Initial flavors are very pleasant but not lingering.

This is so good. High quality wine from an iconic winery. It is bold in ripeness yet still elegant. I rarely like to drink wine without food, but this is a meal of a Chardonnay. Bring on the lobster if you must.
