The juice is loose! Leslee said taste of "juicy fruit" and now that's all I can taste! Also has hints of lemon zest and honeydew!

Clear pale yellow with aromas of tropical and stone fruits and floral notes. The palate shows pear and peach flavors, a touch of smoky oaky, mineral tones with nice balance of acidity. The finish is about medium with lemony ending.

Smooth and versatile with restrained oak, this Chardonnay is all about the peach and citrus flavors.

My wife tends to be more of a Chardonnay fan than I am, but this one, I thoroughly enjoyed. Not too oaky, not too sweet, just right acidity. Definitely a recommendation to try it here.

Fresh and crisp aroma with tropical fruit, violets, honeysuckle, and nectarine. Taste gives way to a warm medium body with gentle creaminess. More acidic and fruity to start and easy cashew and vanilla finish. Pleasant all around crowd pleaser.

Good balance but nothing spectacular.
