Bright straw gold. Shy nose of quince and vanilla oak. Full-bodied, and extremely subtle palate of quince, nutmeg, and a hint of white pepper on the medium finish. Medium acidity. A wine to accompany a meal, preferably featuring an aromatic dish as this will compliment with subtly hinted flavors. I’m enjoying mine with the spicy version Jay’s “Just Chicken”™ with sweet kale and broccoli noodles.

Lighter bodied than your typical Chard. Some nice acid and freshness. Neutral oak flavors. Deliciously balanced.

A Chardonnay that's a little more fruit forward and a little less oakey than most. A good buy at $15.
