Pale lemon with aromas of citrus, stone fruits and honey notes. On the palate flavors of apple, lemon and peach with some oak notes, lively acidity. Medium+ finish ending with creamy ripe fruit and floral character.

Some zesty fruit married to an oak tree. Not subtle. My Chardonnay preferences are definitely changing over time and this one is very yesterday.

Medium straw in color with a nose of lemon, star fruit, flint, and toast. Medium to full-bodied, well balanced with all elements playing together nicely. Nice, long finish.

Depends what n how you like oaky Chardonnays. I don’t so I really like this. Super mellow and drinkable.

Lovely and lush on the tongue. Great for a cold spring day - promises a beautiful summer!

We had the 2017 Vintage on 4/2-3/20. The quality and enjoyment factor of this wine exceeds its modest price of $17. Tastes of lemon, oak vanilla and minerals come together in a pleasant well balanced wine.
