Hess Select Chardonnay 2012

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

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.
