Description: Medium gold in colour a medium intense nose.
Positives: A well made inexpensive Chard from California, a goal that I try to search out because I do favour their well made Chards. This wine features light toasted oak, lemon zest, juicy apple, cinnamon, pineapple, peach, lemon custard, guava, apricot & limestone. Medium bodily with good acidity & length.
Negatives: Slightly sour on the taste.
Interesting Point: Use the larger Chard glass & look for LCBO to have specials on this wine throughout the year.
Drink now on its own or pair it with garlic buttered escargot.
