Creamy and smooth, this Chardonnay is strikingly different from the prior vintage. It has a splash of lemon zest and a hint of grassiness to the finish. It paired nicely with monster California-fusion style burritos. This wine is so young it should be illegal to drink it before 2016!

Decent amount of citrus on the nose and mid palate, medium acidity and a medium finish. Definitely worth having again.

I almost never enjoy chardonnay... But this one... Just a hint of oak to give it a little weight and butter with plenty of fruit. I love how the winemaker really let the grapes speak for themselves!

Light, refreshing and crisp. Not my usual descriptors for a Chard but definitely a reason I like this. One of my kids identified peach and pear on the nose while my wife and I found it to be smooth on the palate with a medium finish. Definitely have again.
