Description
When a wine balances body with acidity, it’s so delightful. This medium-body Chardonnay leads with vibrant aromas of pineapple cake, grilled Meyer lemon, orange zest, and baked apples. On the palate, you get this creamy mouthfeel evoking caramelized peaches, roasted hazelnuts, and chamomile tea, which is counterbalanced by minerality and fresh acidity. Pour us a glass, stat!

This complex white wine offers aromas of marmalade that lead into notes of marshmallow and white lilies. Flavors of grilled peach and pineapple follow. With refined acidity, the finish is long and elegant.
