This Chardonnay is the epitome of Hagafen Chardonnay: lively, engaging, smugly pleasant and oh-so agreeable. With its light sunflower hue and Honey Crisp apple, pineapple and lemon zest bouquet, our newest Chardonnay is a perfect accompaniment to your Fall experiences. The aromas continue on with hints of baking spice and light butterscotch. The flavors on the palate, of Asian pear and Golden Delicious apple, adds to the soft and luscious fruitiness found in the nose and are balanced with light crème fresh. The demure spiciness adds just the right amount of zest and leaves your mouth charmed and wanting more.
