Very interesting Chardonnay from California. Hints of peach and pear on the nose and apple flavors while tasting. Crisp, with a nice and attractive oaky overtone.
I found predominant toasty oak first on the palate, with sweet peaches, nectarines and other starchy fruits to follow, with again, spice and toast on the finish. A but rustic, but in a good way I think. I didn't find it to have a strong nose, but faint hints of pears, apples and nectar. nice clean, crisp finish.
This is a good bottle of chardonnay for the price, nicely balanced between richly creamy notes and the acidity. Aromas of pear, cream, and apple. Flavors are creamy apple, with a vanilla inflected finish. Nicely made for those who enjoy their chards rich, but not flabby.
