    Winemaker's Notes:

    Golden straw in color. Aromas of Asian pear, butter crust apple tart tatin, juicy golden pineapple, guava, Meyer Lemon, orange blossom, honeysuckle, hints of toasted hazelnut. The palate has a sweet, focused entry that open into a fleshy, round and bright mid-palate, notes of citrus, cream filled profiteroles with spun sugar, and a clean mineral-driven finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is a wine that offers lots of class at a very good price. It’s marked by flavors of streamlined citrus fruit, Asian pear, honey and a hint of buttered toast. It finishes thoroughly dry.

    Appealing for its mix of creamy, vanilla-laced oak and supple pear and honeysuckle flavors. Persistent finish. Drink now through 2017.

    Excellent elegant wine; Not sweet or fruity; at this price, incredible value; enjoyable on its own; don't pass this bargain up; we are Chardonnay lovers and this ranks at the top of our favorites

    Solid Chardonnay. Maybe a little over priced but that's just because I'm cheap. Good crisp fruit with a notable buttery texture. Not super buttery but notable. Good acidity. At this price some Chards can get a little too bright for me but this one was a well hit single by your lead off batter. If you're looking for the sustainable growing practices wines this is one of those. Again if it was at $15.99 I'd be buying a case. It's performance just doesn't justify the $19.99 price tag.

    WS rating of 88 on the mark. Was looking for a rich, oakey chardonnay which is becoming hard to find. This came up short of the description we read prior to purchase. A good chardonnay we will be saving for our guests who more favor less oakey whites.

    Good drinking Chardonnay, buttery and oaky, the way we like them.
