Tasting Notes
Golden straw color. Fruity, inviting aromas of caramel drenched marshmallows, candied lemon peel, baked apple with sultanas, orange flesh, and vanilla bean with a velvety, crisp, fruity medium body and a warming, refreshing, crisp golden delicious apple taffy, crisp parsnip, and lemon curd raisin toast finish with silky tannins and light oak. A fruity and creamy chardonnay with delicious, pairable flavors.
