    Winemaker's Notes:

    This crisp and fresh Chardonnay opens with aromas of orange blossom, lemon oil and toasted brioche with sweet cream apple butter. "Medium" on the richness scale, KARIA charms with its balance of ripe fruit, understated barrel spice, mouth-filling texture and refreshing acidity. The palate is loaded with flavors of ripe stone fruit and apple blossom that lead to a persistent citrus and spice infused finish.

    Try pairing this wine with a fresh goat cheese salad drizzled with honey and toasted almonds, Dungeness crab cakes or garlic-studded roast chicken.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Part of this cuvee is put through malolactic and about one-third is aged in stainless steel and two-thirds in wood. This light straw-colored Chardonnay is a Napa Valley regional blend as opposed to an estate Chardonnay. It offers up aromas of orange blossom, honeysuckle and lemon oil in its medium-bodied, crisp, fresh style. Enjoy it over the next 2-3 years.

    Wonderful medium body, great color. Served at wine pairing dinner at my house with 4 friends. Enjoyed by all-meal scallops, yukon potatoes, basil carrots, balsamic mushrooms.

    A nice light summer drinking wine that is smooth and tasty. Not creamy, not oaky

    Rich and delicious with vanilla, pear, oak and some butter-cream from the malolactic fermentation. Great aromatics.
