" Aged in French oak, 40% new, the 2019 Chardonnay gives up expressive notes of ripe Bosc pears, fresh yellow apples and green guava with hints of marzipan, powdered ginger and pie crust. Medium to full-bodied, the creamy-textured palate delivers a wonderfully racy line, lifting the intense apple and pears flavors, finishing long and spicy."
