A soft creamy, viscous chard that's part big and part cool climate in style. The 2012 vintage delivers ripe fruit though, more towards the tree fruit and tropical range with apple, melon and banana. But on the palate there's some lemony acidity that acts as a nice foil to the thick, waxy, honeyed mouthfeel. All in all a nice Chard for a decent price. Feb. 2015.
