2013 J. Wilkes Central Coast Chanda's Reserve Chardonnay
Appearance: Light to medium straw with brilliant clarity.
Aromatics: Hints of chalky minerality framed by green apple, quince, pear, whispers of tropical aromas, buttery oak, lime blossom and caramel.
Palate: Impeccable balance between the persistent richness, bright, ripe fruit (echoes of apple, pear, quince, pineapple and guava) and delicious roundness from attack to mid-palate, with crisp acidity, hints of granitic minerality and excellent overall harmony. Easy to sip, drink and love for novices or serious geeks!
Food Pairing: Chicken, Pork or Duck Curry from mild to slightly spicy, or any white fish (Halibut,black cod?) in a butter-based preperation. Shrimp scampi with some garlic bread would also be an amazing combination with this delicious and specia Chardonnay.
