Edna Valley Vineyard Chardonnay

Pear, pineapple, vanilla, and honeysuckle aromas roll up from the glass. Baked pear, fresh pineapple, and vanilla show on the palate, with lemon peel on the finish. The wine is fruity, zesty, and bright. Drink with fried chicken, preferably outside and while sitting on a blanket. Recommended. 87 points. DBH
