Either you’ll love it or hate it. I happen to love it.
Positives: This is not a fruit driven Chard as it features smokey sweet oak spice, buttery toast, butterscotch, toasted marshmallows, lemon, pear, vanilla, cinnamon, coconut and peaches & cream corn. Full body with medium acidity and a very long length.
Interesting Point: Use the new world large Chardonnay glasses if you have them.
Drink now or over the next 2 years on its own or pair it with snow crab and drawn butter.
