Reviews and Ratings
|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This wine was cold fermented in in stainless steel and filtered prior to oak aging. About 2/3 of the wine was permitted to go through malolactic fermentation to add more complexity to the finished product. There are sweet, rich aromas of pear, peach, buttered popcorn and vanilla. This wine is so lovely on the palate, luxurious, creamy and so well textured, the toasty oak comes through beautifully.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
From River Junction, California a rich Chard with delicious tropical fruit and slight lemon on the nose. The palate gives tropical pineapple, lime, vanilla, coconut and buttered toast, with a tropical fruit finish.

|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Intriguing and alluring tropical fruit galore. Dominant notes include banana, papaya, melon, and apple. The palate is showing an oh-so-yummy rich creamy and buttery mouthfeel. Lasting concentrated flavours include spiced apple, lemon and a hint of butterscotch. Overall, a divine value-priced chardonnay. Pair with creamy seafood chowder.
