    Winemaker's Notes:

    Pleasing aromas of pineapple and toffee greet the nose. Smooth and appealing for its balance, this wine presents flavors of pear, golden delicious apple, citrus zest and cloves. Lively acids invite these flavors to linger on the palate. Pair with citrus-sage roasted chicken, salmon or shellfish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lighter, less buttery, and more fruit-driven than the very rich 2007 Chardonnay from Gordon Brothers, this new vintage better captures the house style. Impeccably balanced, with a good range of apple and other green and yellow fruits, it’s annotated with hints—not slabs—of oak.

    Thirty percent of the light gold-colored 2008 Chardonnay spent time in a mix of new and used French oak. The nose offers up a hint of toast, baking spices, apple, poached pear, and white peach. Vibrant on the palate, it has plenty of savory fruit and a lengthy finish. Drink it over the next 3 years.
