Nose: Our Chardonnay makes an impression the minute you bring the glass to your nose. Lemons, peaches, banana, tropical fruits, creaminess,a hint of coconut and vanilla oak. Mouth: I love to linger on the nose, but then you taste it, and there's a party going on right here. All those great citrus and tropical fruit characters come together in a creamy, crisp, lushness that makes me want to blend up Alias Chardonnay frozen cocktails and throw a little umbrella in the glass. (Note to self: try making Alias Chardonnay frozen cocktails). There is just enough oak to give it a touch of toasted bread and vanilla. There is just enough malolactic to give the wine a rich creamy texture, which balances wonderfully with the acidity.
