90pts Robert Parker's
The 2016 Chardonnay Karia is scented of green apples, lemons and orange blossom with a waft of peach kernels and lightly browned toast. The medium to full-bodied palate is understated and well poised, with satiny texture and good expression.
This graceful Chardonnay has inviting aromas of pear, white peach, and honeysuckle. Medium bodied, this wine has a lovely texture and delicate ripe fruit notes with hints of minerality and lemon zest on the finish. There is a nice balance to the acidity and minerality that enhances the freshness and elegance of this wine. Try pairing this Chardonnay with grilled chicken with lemon aioli, grilled salmon with a cucumber, tomato and fresh dill salsa or roast chicken breast stuffed with spinach and feta cheese.
