Drank 4/7/20. Nice with Crabcakes.

Simple, lemon curd on the nose. Fruit forward palate with lemon, green apple, and a hint of pear. Creamy mouth feel suggests sur lie aging, but no detectable oak. A clean, well made chardonnay, nice, but a bit simple for my taste. Medium finish.

2/22/7/4/3 +50 =88 pts.

Great value! Awesome! Tropical citrus and apple flavors with just enough oaky creaminess on the finish.

So incredibly smooth: a perfect blend of vanilla notes, citrus & cream that produce a well balanced sip from start to finish…wow!

2018 Vintage Fresh taste, smooth and easy to drink with chicken and vegetables! Notes of pear and citrus! Nice wine for the price!

Decent. Not the best I've tastted but also not the worst. If none of my higher rated wines were available, I'd buy again. Decent creaminess, decent fruit, not sour, not pineapple. Apple? Overall decent.
