This is the style of chard that I like. It is not so over the top buttery. And the acidity remains crisp which means that there was less malolactic fermentation.

Pale gold in color with a green tinge, the 2006 estate Chardonnay greets the nose with aromas of pear, peach and citrus, as well as some sweet toast. In the mouth, the wine is alive with the vibrant flavors of concentrated fruit, with a hint of toast. A full bodied wine, this Chardonnay shows excellent balance and exhibits a long, crisp finish.

Smoky pear flavors and lemony acidity rise up from under this wine's warm blanket of alcohol. The fruit is relatively light for such a rich style. Chill for roast salmon.

Toasty pear, apple and citrus flavors are prevalent in this bright, textured, refreshing wine. A mineral edge adds complexity and interest, finishing bright and fresh.

Intensives Gelb mit zitronenartigem Schimmer. Geröstete Mandeln und Toastbrot in der noblen Nase, reife Ananas und Honig dahinter, überzeugende Meursault-Affinität. Fülliger Auftakt mit mandelartigem Extrakt und feiner Moccanote, cremig in der viel Reserven versprechenden Mitte, zimtbetontes Birnenkompott und etwas Mango bis ins lange nachklingende Finale.

Gentle and round with peach flavors, this has the coolness of the Russian River fog. Oak fermentation comes through in smoky flavors and a spicy sweetness. Chill it for grilled prawns.
