Lemon, peach, underripe tropical fruit, waxy, mineral. A bit simple but nice.

Recommended by store employee. I was discussing how I like a Graves with blend and this was her suggestion. To me this is a Cali Chard. Nothing wrong with this wine, but not for my palate. There was not anytime no that stood out with this wine. Vanilla oak is its primary aromatic. Full bodied. Low acidity

Great chard. Not much butter, bright golden apple and citrus, with maybe a hint of oak. Paired very well with crab cakes.

White burgundy - in a Sauvignon Blanc style, not quite the mouthfeel but goes amazing with seafood and for the money this is a nice house white and is versatile.

A French chard for California Chardonnay drinkers. Lots of body from malolactic fermentation. Entry level from southern burgundy.
