"This offers lively apple and green pear flavors, accented by light spicy and oaky nuances. Subtle honeyed notes show on the finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases made.KM" (WS)

"Toasty aromas of peach brioche, lemon juice and melted butter show on the nose of this bottling. Bright flavors of nectarine and white peach are cut by lemon zest before growing richer into honeysuckle and guava. Matt Kettmann" (WE)

Winery Notes:
Chardonnay greets the nose with an array of ripe fruit aromas, including citrus, guava, and orange peel. The round mouth shows depth and body complemented by forward flavors of tropical fruit. A touch of spicy oak adds complexity. Balanced acidity creates structure and a long, complex finish.
