2016 Edna Valley Vineyard Chardonnay

As the wine warms in the glass, fruit and some vanilla vie for attention in the aroma. The whispered fruit turns opulently tropical and overflows onto the palate, inviting some strawberry along too. A baking spice & vanillin finish, but not overly so. Easy to sip on its own or with your fave light dinner.
