He said: Crystal clear, light straw color. Strong aromas of citrus fruit and pear. Crisp, refreshing citrus and tropical fruit flavors and medium length dry fruit finish with lots of lemon and mineral notes. This is a GREAT Chardonnay, lots of depth and it is wonderful drunk alone. It was a memorable wine!!!
She said: We bought this for sipping in the afternoon but it turned out to be so much more. From the start to finish the bouquet and flavor was fruity and delicious, lasting into the dry medium length finish. Each taste was a treat to be savored and there was no need for food. In fact, the wine was far superior when sipped alone after a salad. This is an exceptional Chardonnay and worth the price even if it is over the bargain budget.
