The 2020 Chardonnay has aromas of honeysuckle, apple blossom and lemon zest followed by soft accents of vanilla. Apricot and honeydew flavors flow across the palate, with lightly toasted oak, cool minerality and a lingering citrus note adding texture and depth. This wine is clean, with a persistent finish. Enjoy with roasted chicken or salmon with cream sauce.
