Highly aromatic nose of smoke, apple, orchard fruit and some tartness. The palate is medium+ bodied and creamy with spiced, toasty aroma replays. Acids are very good and well-balanced. Excellent length on the finish. Tasted Apr/2016.

This wine is all about lemon butter. It's lean not fat and fresh and light instead of heavy. Shows woodsy vanilla on the nose with pure lemon juice and lemon butter on the palate. Did I mention lemon...yes very lemony.

This Chard needs time in the glass to open and for a strong reductive sluphur, onion aroma to dissipate. With time a really nice PEC Chard emerges. Notes of apple, pear, citrus, white flower, ginger, honey and minerality emerge. Vibrant acidity and medium bodied creaminess provide structure to the unfolding complexity of aromas. Excellent length seals the deal for a 90 rating. This will get better in the bottle, so if you have a few be patient and save some for three years down the road. Dec. 2016.
A leaner citric Chard
Description: Bright gold in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This wine features lightly butter toasted oak, lemon, green & yellow apples, pear, dill, kumquat, kiwi, marzipan, oak spice. Medium+ body with good acidity and a long length.
Negatives: The finish has an overripe citric taste
Interesting Note: Don’t over chill this Chard as the cold will mask some of its nuances
Drink now or in 2-3 years on its own or pair it with Veal Piccata with Angel Hair and Parmigiana-Reggiano.
