Pineapples and mangoes are tempered by notes of darkly toasted oak and roasted nuts on the nose of this Virginia Chard. Dry and full bodied in style, it boasts some nicely concentrated tropical fruit along with fresh, lemony acidity and some creamy, yogurt flavors. Lush on the tongue but ends on a woody, astringent note.
