Top Notes For
Sipping Fine Wine

Pale lemon with stone fruit aromas and toasty spice. On the palate crisp green apple, pear and peach fruit flavors with floral and vanilla spice. This wine is medium-bodied, with nice buttery mouthfeel, smooth & creamy. Medium+ finish, balanced with lively acidity and fruit adding slight toasty ending. Consistent quality.

I like the butter and oak - but possibly a little too much pineapple-mango tropical fruit / Solero going on

Crisp for a Chardonnay with bright acidity and citrus over oak and pear. Balances well with food.

Pear, brown sugar and tree bark. Not unpleasant but short hot finish.
