Sipping Fine Wine

First, the silver packaging wrap they put it in is just awful as opening is not an easy task. Pale lemon color with aromas of tropical and stone fruit with wafts of citrus. On the palate flavors of peaches and ripe apple with melon and lemon juice, lively acidity with slight notes of vanilla oak. Medium+ finish ending with citrus fruit and oaky mineral character. Nice, even better if they just dropped the silver packaging.

For Burgundy lovers: a round, no hard edges, completely & subtlety Oaked chard. Quite compelling, & 20$-under. Very elegant.

Nothing outstanding. Reminds me of CA Chardonnay.
