2010 Estate Chardonnay

Asian pear, pineapple and lemon peel establish the fragrance of this wine. Like flavors follow these aromas with the addition of lilikoi on the palate. This wine is so clean, and yet so complex. With no malo-lactic fermentation, and small amounts of oak help round out the wine to make it my favorite Estate Chardonnay to date!
