    Winemaker's Notes:

    Pale gold in color, bright and fresh aromatics of asian pear, lemon curd, jicama and clover honey emerge initially while secondary notes of key lime, hazelnut, wet stone and himalayan pink salt drift in the background. Oily and tender on the palate initially, with a vibrant acidity maintaining the wine's focus and verve.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Light gold. Musky aromas of orchard and pit fruits, toasty lees and butter. Sweet and full but vibrant too, with suavely integrated acidity leavening the ripe pear and nectarine flavors. Spreads out on the back end without any loss of vivacity. Finishes ripe and smooth, with lingering smokiness and excellent persistence.

    While this Chardonnay has rich tropical fruit and citrus flavors, with a light touch of oak, the acidity and minerality make it taste clean and balanced. Don't drink it too cold, and be sure to enjoy it with Dungeness crab and buttered sourdough bread.

    I like all Melville wines, so this Verna's Chardonnay is no exception. This is not among my favorite Chardonnays by any means, but it is a very good value for the price.
