Wente “Eric’s Chardonnay”

Fresh cut apples and apple pie mix on the nose. This unoaked Chardonnay is loaded with tropical and citrus fruits, with a steel backbone. Green apple, pineapple, and lemon zest are followed with softer guava and mango. Lemon zest lingers on the finish. Drink with poached sole. Highly Recommended. 91 points. DBH
