Winemaker's Notes

This is a distinctive Chardonnay of intense aromatic complexity, with fragrant varietal aromas of white, citrus and tropical fruits offset by slightly spicy, toasty notes. These complex impressions are confirmed on the palate, supported by a firm yet elegant structure and rich, buttery texture balanced by a sustaining acidity. The finish is long, full and creamy, with pronounced ripe fruit notes and a suggestion of vanilla.
