Although there is a lot going on with this wine it doesn’t know if it wants to be a commercial California style Chard or a cool climate Chard. Score: 84/100
Tasting Note: Yellow gold in colour with average acidity, a medium+ intense nose & a fairly long length on the finish. Wine features lemon, marzipan, peach, pear, green & yellow apples, ripe pineapple, orange, and passion fruit.
Negatives: There’s a touch of sweetness that has a lingering finish, plus I’m not a fan of marzipan.
Interesting Point: In a glass, I blended this Chard with Niagara Teaching Winery unoaked Chard, & it wasn’t bad, way better than drinking this Chard on its own.
Pairings: Drink this now or in the next couple of years on its own or pair it with slow cooked chicken with filled figs.
My Opinion: Not Recommended
