“…discreetly complex chardonnay that really chisels with air. The palate has a very assertive core of acidity, the fruit remains fleshy and supple, the power and elegance are impressive and the citrus and cool stone fruit flavors close things off.”

"...Consistent acid line and persistent finish, while retaining all of the typical Chardonnay flourishes. Roastednut notes impart an almost nougat-like nuance to the fruit flavors of citrus and white peach."

“It contrasts the oak flavor of its native yeast fermentation in barrel with the spiciness of chardonnay skins, and melds the creaminess of full malolactic fermentation with fresh acidity that has the snap of parsnips."

"Sleek and crisp, this white offers complex and detailed notes of toasted coconut, apple pie, spice and lime zest, complementing the core of pure lemon, melon and peach flavors. Drink now through 2020."
