The Hess Collection 2011 Chardonnay

Tropical aromas and flavors are highlighted with traditional Central Coast notes of lemon and lime zest and a bit of apple. Nicely balanced, crisp, with a lovely mouthfeel and a smooth, lingering finish. This wine’s natural acidity complements tangy, spicy foods and shows well with the richness of creamier dishes.
