2013 Orin Swift Mannequin California Chardonnay

via Instagram Not your typical California Chardonnay here, peeps. Light gold and pure aroma of pear skin, pineapple and mineral. Crisp, intense, tropical flavors. Nicely balanced from fruit and integrated oak. Sweet, but not at all syrupy. Even Chard-haters may find this Dave Phinney creation tough to resist.
