This is a rich, inviting wine filled with aromas of ripe pear, pineapple, and tropical/meloncharacter. You’ll find balanced flavors of apple, pineapple and pear combined with a hint ofsweetness of vanilla and butterscotch that comes from the oak. Our Chardonnay has a mouthwatering creamy texture and a long, smooth balanced finish. It is lovely to be enjoyed on itsown or paired with grilled seafood or rich pasta dishes.
