A smooth, simple Chard that’s not bad, just wish it was a few dollars less
Description: Bright medium gold in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. This wine features light toasted oak, lemon rind, pineapple, young mango, green and red apples. Medium+ body with fairly good acidity and an average length.
Negatives: For a dollar more you get a better Chard from Napa at Beringer’s
Drink now or in the next 2 years on its own or pair it with crab Alfredo.
