"Aromas of white peach, lemon rind and green apple follow through to a medium body, tangy fruit and a green tea undertone. Lighter style. Enjoyable. Drink now."

"The 2017 Chardonnay Karia features grapefruit, lime cordial and orange blossoms with marzipan and beeswax hints on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with lovely vivacity and a refreshing line, finishing zesty."
"The name KARIA (KAR-ee-ah) is derived from the Greek word meaning graceful, and the 2017 KARIA Chardonnay lives up to its moniker. It shows how grapes from select cool-climate vineyards in southern Napa Valley can be vinified and blended into a seamless integration of fresh-fruit aromas and flavors, crisp acidity and subtle oak spice. Light and graceful: that’s KARIA.
This is a graceful Chardonnay with generous aromas of ripe Asian pear and citrus, peach, toasted almond and honeysuckle. Medium bodied, this wine has a gentle mid-palate with a touch of creaminess and oak on the finish. There is a nice balance to the acidity and minerality that enhances the freshness and elegance of this wine.
Try pairing this Chardonnay with grilled chicken with lemon aioli, grilled salmon with a cucumber, tomato and fresh dill salsa or roast chicken breast stuffed with spinach and feta cheese." - Winery
