Gold color with aromas of buttery pineapple, crème brûlée, passion fruit, and mango. There's butter and oak on the palate, too, with notes of tropical fruit and moderate acidity. The finish has notes of piney resin—that mango thing again. This is a big, glossy wine, appealing to those who like the plush style of CA Chardonnay. 13.5% abv | sample

Tropical fruits in the nose, nice pineapple on palate, not too tannic, balanced overall. Not your typical buttery California Chardonnay!

Really oakey. Still really nice though. Especially the last glass.
