Produced from the Merlo Family Vineyards, the Merlo 2014 Chardonnay is a full bodied, well balanced and deliciously food friendly wine. Deep golden straw in color, this Chardonnay offers brilliant clarity with aromas of pear, apple, and baking spices. On the palate, the wine is not overtly buttery - if you look for it, the notes of vanilla and toast from the oak aging are there, but they are discreet and well integrated in the wine, serving as supporting roles than a leading one.
