This Chardonnay took our entire tasting panel by storm. Everyone was crazy about it, especially our Agent Red, who declared:
“This is my sort of Chardonnay to be sure. This wine is soft, silky, loaded with flavor - and sporting an elegant, extended finish. I’ll be adding a case to my cellar - if there’s any left after my Operatives get their hands on it!”
On the nose, this wine shows off gorgeous aromas. Lemongrass, butterscotch, vanilla, dried hay, green apple, pineapple, subtle ginger ale and sweet oak jump from the glass.
On the palate, a burst of flavor, with Granny Smith apple, pineapple, ginger ale, butterscotch, lemongrass, white tea, toasty oak, vanilla and mixed sweet spice.
Please accept the full weight of our recommendation on this one. If you love smooth, flavorful Chardonnay, you’ll absolutely love this wine.
What the Wine Press has to say:
90 points - Virginie Boone, Wine Enthusiast, 12/2015 - “A lightly textured wine that suggests lemon chiffon, this has plenty of body to make it feel rich on the palate, along with ample acidity to keep it refreshingly crisp. Apple and pear rise to the fore, maintaining the fruitiness from start to finish.”
Remember, we offer FREE Temperature-Controlled shipping during the hot summer months. Add optional ice packs if your local area is hot, and your wine will arrive in great condition!

Light straw yellow at the edges, golden at the clear heart of the wine.
Lemongrass, butterscotch, vanilla, dried hay, green apple, pineapple, subtle ginger ale and sweet oak.

Extra long, with a subtle dryness that slowly spreads across the palate.
Enjoy this very flexible white with everything from Thai food, cream pasta, roast chicken, a cheese plate, fish & chips… You get the idea!
