This Chardonnay has a golden hue with flashes of light, hinting at the brightness of the wine. The nose is full of beautiful tropical notes, particularly kiwis, banana cream pie, and apricot. There is a hint of floral, but just a hint. Like when you walk into a room that a woman has just left. There, then gone. On the palate, the drama begins. The tropical flavors dance with crisp Bartlett pear and Pink Lady apples like a break dance competition. All the while, notes of toasted almonds and meringue cheer them on. It’s all about varietal expression, and this wine has all the moves.
