A not so buttery varietal, not heavily oaked. Herbal flavors and smooth finish. Hints of lemon, apricots, and sage.

Nice everyday wine with tropical fruit and citrus on palate but also elegant. Great price point.

A good Chardonnay and outside of my normal buttery and creamy go-to. You can tell it's from a terroir that gets the breeze coming off the Pacific Ocean as well as morning fog. It's medium-bodied and acidity, ripe apple notes, a slight mineralality but more tropical fruit like a muted pineapple and mango. The finish is smooth and lingers nicely.

Nothing wrong with it except every element feels watered down. Mild, pleasant, no finish to speak of.
