Vivid straw yellow in color, this expressive Chardonnay features wafting aromas of lime, pear, peach, apricot, pineapple and golden apple.The palate is marked by a bright entry followed by citrus and stone fruit flavors. A delectable acidity provides a vibrant structure, and a viscous texture contributes to a round, rich mouthfeel. This debut of Light Horse proves to be a brilliant and refined interpretation of the Chardonnay varietal.
Estate Chef's Pairings
The 2012 Light Horse Chardonnay is an approachable, satisfying and food-friendly wine. Mild fish like tuna, sole, scallops and clams pair delightfully well with this wine. The addition of mushrooms or fennel enhances the balance on your palate.
