Quite toasty nose with some hazelnuts and earthy funk, this is a powerful and impressively structured chardonnay that's anything but charming. Bold mineral finish. Drink or hold.

“… a powerful wine wound into a complex yet contained mode. It has plenty of savory hazelnut and biscuit aromas that combine with orange hints and flinty moments in the glass. … demonstrates a sense of weight as it heads to the convincing finish.”

“Lemon curd, spice and verbena flavors are deep and detailed while still vividly crisp, the spice accents gaining momentum on the long finish.”

“… Sexy spices and perfumed yellow stone fruits, apple and pear on the nose … showing superb energy and tactile lift … firm and persistent on the aftertaste.”
