This chardonnay has very subtle aromas of lime, minerality and a hint of butter from sur lie aging. The CSM winemaker uses more old-world (namely Burgundian) winemaking techniques, which means less oak influence. Rather than a round mouthfeel, it is bright and acidic, and tastes of green apple and pear. As the wine warms up, the oak nuances start to come out, with sweet spice, butterscotch, and toasted qualities. Perfect for roasted chicken.
