Style and grace

In the glass, this Santa Barbara Chard has a golden straw core with whitening edges and a thin, translucent halo….

The nose has a red apple base before showing hints of pineapple, lemon zest, and just a touch of petrol….

The palate has a mandarin orange start that quickly dissipates into more of the luscious pineapple that I got on the nose ——–> The mid-palate brightens up a bit with tart green apples and cantaloupe before the ending adds a touch of weight with a hint of oak and a rounding vanilla kick….

Hey, y’all…. Lumen Wines are ON FIRE and this Chardonnay is yet another example as to why! This thing’s got it all ———> Savory notes, bright acidity, and just a touch of oak balance this thing out with style and grace…. They only made 269 cases of this stuff so do yourself a favor and grab some while you still can!!!
