Bello Family Vineyards 2016 Chardonnay

This wine opens with essences of honeydew melon, vanilla bean, dry sage and fresh cut pineapple. These primary notes evolve to Clementine orange peel, Gala apple, Comice pear with baked apple crisp overtones. This generous wine exhibits a lush fruity entry framed by pungent mesquite honey notes that transitions to rich Bosc pear notes with lively essences of spicy ginger, clove, split vanilla bean and finishing with a flinty body of complex wet river rock mineral layers.
