Pale straw with a golden edge. Exotic spice, sandalwood, Tahitian vanilla, butterscotch, pineapple and lemon cookie. Savory notes of salt water taffy and nougat; rich creamy spicy with a backbone of fresh yellow fruit. Unique, fresh and full. Very inviting. Soft entry, rich creamy mid palate, notes of dried yellow apple, lemon merengue, bosc pear and sweet toast citrus peel. A deliciously balanced wine, concentrated, lifted acidity, nice length slightly smoky, mineral finish. The wine is full bodied with exotic spice and a toasty, lifted finish.
Chef Kolin recommends pairing the Stiling Chardonnay with Butternut Squash Ravioli with fried sage and brown butter or with Wine Braised Chicken with crème fraîche mashed potatoes.
