Joel Gott Chardonnay
This Chardonnay has aromas of honeydew melon, green apple, nectarine and mandarin with notes of honeysuckle. On the palate, the wine opens with bright fruit flavors, followed by crisp minerality and flavors of grapefruit on the mid-palate and a hint of spice on the long, clean, balanced finish.
Notes of baked pear, caramel, hazelnut, honey, and a touch of clove and honeysuckle. The palate is warm and weighty with pear, citrus, butterscotch, and baking spice.
Harken Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented to create a rich Chardonnay with a classic profile of tropical fruit and Bosc pear alongside warm oak aromatics. Oaky, buttery, and bold.
