Top Notes For
"Odedi"

Pale yellow in color.

Fruity nose with apples, citrus, oak, spices, pears and white pepper.

Full bodied, smooth and bold, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with limes, lemon juice, citrus, yellow apples, light vegetables, spices, wood, vanilla and black pepper.

Medium finish with spices.

This is a very enjoyable Chardonnay from Santa Rita Hills in California.

Showing nice balance. Not too Oaky, not too buttery and not too bitter, just the right amount. A good sipping wine.

Good by itself or with food. This Single Vineyard Chardonnay is a good quality wine.

I had it all by itself in my new favorite white wine glass from Le Deux Glasses.

"Odedi"

Light gold in color with a green hue.

Pronounced nose of citrus, lemons, oak, vanilla, spices, grapefruits, pears and red apples.

Full bodied, buttery and smooth, with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with red apples, citrus, lemons, grapefruits, sea salt, white pepper, oak, vanilla and spices.

Medium plus on the finish with limes and almonds.

This is a very enjoyable California Chardonnay. Shows a very typical taste profile, with an above average quality and flavor.

Good by itself as a sipping wine, as it is not bitter. Nice length on the finish, which I liked.

This is a nice surprise. Enjoyable and gracious mouthfeel with nice complexity.

Better when not very cold to show the complexity.

I paired it with cheeses and nuts.
