The Central Coast Chardonnay is a golden straw color and displays aromas of pears, apples and tropical nuances with subtle notes of butter. On the entry, pear and green apple flavors are framed by nice acidity which integrates well with the medium body mouth feel. The green apple and peach flavors evolve into a hint of minerality that adds complexity to the lengthy finish.
Pairings: Roasted chicken, soft cheeses, rich white fish, scallops, shrimp, poached lobster.
