Tasting Note: Channels white Burgundy with its finesse and integration of fruit and oak.

Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of almond, bosc pear and just-ripened green apple with hints of vanilla and lemon-citrus peel.

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