Chardonnay

2017 Chardonnay Tasting Note

Aromatics of butterscotch and apple lead into flavors of pear, toffee and allspice. This full, buttery Chardonnay is perfectly integrated with oak and fruit to provide a long sweet vanilla, toasty oak and Asian pear driven finish. The wine should be served at room temperature or slightly chilled — too cold and you will mute the beautiful flavors and aromas. This wine will pair well with buttery and or cream-based sauces and fatty fish like salmon.
