Chardonnay

2020 Chardonnay Tasting Note

Sweet toasted oak and viscous structure, this wine is silky smooth with enough acid to leave a clean and fruity finish. It opens up with aromas of ripe pear and yellow apple leading to flavors of apple and passion fruit. Pear flavors and slight butter notes on the finish. This wine will pair well with creamy dishes like pastas with alfredo sauce. It is also the perfect wine for white fish with some dill and butter, shellfish/fish stews like Bouillabaisse, seared scallops in butter and crab cakes.
