Chardonnay Tasting Notes:  Round and viscous with pear, green apple, peach, tropical fruit, citrus, mineral, flinty and subtle spice & butterscotch. With oak aging or barrel fermentation notes of butter, toasted oak, vanilla and coconut. If wine goes through malolactic fermentation, concentrated butter, cream and even hazelnut flavors can emerge.  Generally full bodied and dry.
