Natalie's Score: 88/100
Classically made Californian Chardonnay with balance and finesse, but it also reveals lip-smacking delicious flavours of green apple and butterscotch. The winemaking Kautz family was first to plant Chardonnay grapes in Lodi and that experience with the varietal shows. There's a crisp, refreshing finish. Crack it open tonight. Finishes with fleshy ripe tropical fruit flavors and toast. Almost full-bodied, lots of oak and butter with some peach fruit. Pair with roast chicken.
Chardonnay food pairings: pasta, shellfish, chicken breast, barbecued pork, cheese fondue.

|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A beautiful tropical nose with ripe banana, pineapple, guava nose and floral touches of honeysuckle and rose.A dry palate repeats these, adding butterscotch. A buttery, creamy tropical finish. Yum!
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
In a word: Delicious! Enticing brilliant medium lemon colour in the glass. First nose into the glass brought me childhood memories of Kraft caramels at Halloween. Other aromas and flavours include tropical fruit, apple, citrus, honeysuckle, honey,toast and creamery butter. The palate is weighty and mouth-filling with medium+ acidity. Long length on a butterscotch finish. A terrific price performer. Pair macaroni and cheese casserole, roasted chicken or turkey, seafood, shellfish or on it's own. This is a "why buy only 1" wine.
Tasted: February 2015
|This Californian from Ironstone is a consistent Chardonnay year after year. Pair with tuna steaks. - Community Wine Reviews|
