The perfect rebuttal to 'I don't like chardonnay'. Cleaner, more mineral driven nose than a typical California chard. Lemon oil, crispy crunchy green apples and bright, youthful acidity! Not being muted by oak, fruit is the star power here. Still round on the palate from natural MF, the finish stays with you for minutes.

Big mineral, bright acid, would work well with asian or Indian. Tasty.

Reminiscent of a citrus orchard after a rain. Fresh, alive, and clean. The creaminess and weight of the body suggest ML, while nose and palate are led by zesty lemon peel. Burgundian is certainly a descriptor, as the chalkiness of that region is of major influence here.

Fresh and bright, none of that huge oak creaminess. A biting acidity and minerality, with some white pepper and stone.

This is really high quality chard as fas Sonoma goes at this price. Lioco as cut itself their our niche, away from industry norms.

Clear straw yellow color. Aromas of stone fruit with herb notes. The palate shows Apricot, peach and sweet Apple with fresh acidity that packs a punch. Nice aftertaste and medium length finish delivering a great value from Sonoma Coast.
