Not too acidic. Light oak. Overall a good Chardonnay

Sure, oak is prominent here, but to me it’s more of a decoy for the lovely fresh stone fruit core and enhances the nuances of cantaloupe, lime, honeysuckle, and light citrus. Acidity is round yet firm, good enough to give the richly textured palate a lift. I usually prefer more saline and mineral, but this is undeniably well made and delicious. And quite elegant.
