A yellow - greenish color. Fresh and fruity scents of bright, lemony citrus and green apple aromas. The wine has a rich taste, with notes of wild flowers and tropical fruits on the palate. Good structure and noble taste. It has good acidity with a lingering rich lime finish.

This straw colored Chardonnay has aromas of lemon pith, lime juice and Granny Smith apple. On the palate there are flavors of apple pie, apple slices and lemon juice that lead to a creamy finish.

The 2016 Autograf Chardonnay was aged for four months in used French oak and comes in at 13% alcohol. Relatively rich, clean, ripe and fruity, this has a lush feel in the mouth and a friendly demeanor. The depth is pretty nice for the price, although the structure is just what you'd expect in a fruit-forward, everyday Chard. Still, this shows very well just now. It's a nice bargain that easily exceeds expectations in the short run. Just drink it young for best results. It won't reward aging.
