Tasting Notes
As with all our 2010 whites, the Helix Chardonnay has wonderful acid but boasts more mouthfeel thanks to the 20% new French oak.  It shows both the orchard and the tropics featuring tart pear, ripe pineapple, hint of banana and guava melded all together with a little butterscotch.  -Chuck Reininger
