This straw-colored Chardonnay from Edna Valley opens with an apricot, grapefruit, and mango bouquet with hints of pineapple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel very bright, round, and fresh. The flavor profile is a chalky minerality, lemon and mild Bartlett pear. I also detected hints of yellow peach, gentle pineapple and subtle vanilla and oak. The finish is fades away nicely.
