Wine Description

An infusion of Meyer lemon and cardamom delicately highlights the essence of Asian pear and white fig. On the palate, luminous ripe-fruit flavors gently embrace a flinty backbone, lingering in glorious reminders of pears and cream. Marry this wine with a lobster tomato bisque or fettucine served with fresh clams enhanced by a garlicky fish stock and Chardonnay reduction.

  • Decanter
    (2005 Vintage) Rating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Shy at first, it opens to reveal lovely aromas of peach, hazelnut, mineral and crème brûlée. Texturally it is silky, creamy and absolutely charming. Good acidity supports its flavours of peach, melon, spice and vanilla. At its best over the next two years
