Wine: Talbott Kali-Hart Chardonnay
Aromas of vanilla and brioche in the aroma lead to notes of mandarin, pineapple and melon contribute to an unctuous, inviting palate. Following the dense tropical fruit flavors, there is a soft, wonderfully clean finish with a touch of minerality and hard spice notes.
Beer: Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat Beer
Lively, refreshing ale with a natural citrusy flavor and distinctive cloudy appearance.
