Pale yellow color. Aromas of crisp lemon cookies and nectarine. On the palate, light-bodied, layered, and soft-edged. Flavors include lime, baked golden and green apple, nectarine skin. Sweet fruit, pith and bright acid on the finish.
Always best lightly chilled, and paired with light and lower-fat foods. And of course, always lovely by itself as an aperitif, paired with a sunset or a sunny afternoon. Try with a simply prepared filet of white, delicate fish, grilled or roasted chicken with lemon, veggie-based soups such as potato, parsnip or cauliflower, or, in summer, a cold cucumber soup with yogurt and dill.
The 2018 Chardonnay Unoaked offers a good intensity of uncomplicated Golden delicious apples, honeydew melon and poached pears scents. Medium bodied, it fills the mouth with apple and pear inspired flavors with soft acid and a savory touch to the finish.
