Tasting Note: A Willamette-Valley chardonnay from famed-winemaker André Mack proves the ubiquitous grape can have character, body and attractive personality.

Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of golden apple, pear, lemon zest, starfruit and blossom with a hint of nectarine stonefruit..

On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied chardonnay has medium-plus-intensity, green-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a lemon-citrus-and-pear-infused, medium-plus finish.

The wine is slightly creamy in texture with a floral midpalate.

This is the chardonnay friends will ask you, “Where did you get that?” when you pour.
