A little tight on the nose. Nice texture. Not too acidic or over-oaked. Unable to decipher specific fruit flavors, almost floral.

I thought this wine was a nice wine for the price. It went great with my seafood gumbo.

Not really into the whites, so take this comment with a grain of salt. The bouquet is really fragrant with a vanilla and tropical fruity scents. The butterscotch sweetness really surprised me - was expecting a drier wine, so I had my octopus and porkchops out and ready to pair with it. Did not really go well with it. For me, this had summer written all over it. Grapefruit tastes towards the end, kinda hits you abruptly. Oh, and drink it while its chilled. I had my glass sit out longer than I should've and just got all grapefruit by then. Kinda indifferent about it, give me a nice red anytime.

A little oak, brisk acidity and good flavors of lemons, limes and mangoes mark this dry, stylishly creamy wine that’s fine for drinking now, at a good price.

Exhibits a fresh, vibrant core of green pear and apple fruit, with spice, honeydew melon and light cedar notes, ending with a cleansing aftertaste. Drink now.

Glänzendes Strohgelb, Reichhaltiges Bouquet von Ananas, Guave, Zitronenschale und zarter Vanillenote vom dezenten Eichenholzeinsatz. Die Aromen setzen sich am Gaumen fort, ergänzt durch reife Birne und Pfirsich. Ein Vorzeigebespiel für zeitgemässen Chardonnay!

"This Hess Select Chardonnay brings fruit aromas of freshly cut pineapple, pear, and lemon blossom with notes of vanilla, caramel, and a light touch of oak. In the mouth, the fruit continues showing ripe pear, peach, and pineapple with a great texture on the mid-palate leading into a crisp, bright finish. Given the fresh fruity style, this wine is best consumed in the next two years." -Winery

Winemaker's Notes:

"Aromas of pear and citrus, highlighting lemon and lime, are followed on the palate with pineapple and tropical fruit flavors. Medium bodied and refreshing, a subtle oak toast balances acidity, resulting in a wine crafted in a modern, fruit-forward style, wonderful to enjoy on its own as an apéritif, or with a wide array of dishes across many cuisines." -Winery
