This pale straw-colored Chardonnay is lighter bodied than most Chardonnays I have covered. It opens with a shy citrus, floral bouquet with notes of light herbs. The wine is brisk, lively, and round with good acidity and noted minerality. The flavor profile is a citrus, lemon zest and saline blend with notes of pears, tangerines, and very light spices. The finish was dry, pleasant, and lingered nicely. I would recommend pairing this Chardonnay with baked scallops and Ritz cracker topping.

Not as simple as its name suggests, this well-balanced and full-bodied wine contrasts rich, ripe pear and apple flavors with light baking spices and a touch of butter.
