Overall I was disappointed in this Chard because its just an okay wine from a good winery, a really good appellation and it tastes more like a $15 wine.

Positives: No new wood detected. Chard features lemon/lime, unripe pineapple, green apples, honeydew melon and limestone. Medium body with good acidity and average length.

Negatives: Not much here, good crispiness but lacks fruit.

Interesting Point: Don’t over chill in order to maximize the fruit that is present.

Drink now on its own or pair it with lemon/pepper catfish.

Tasted: 7 March 2013
