Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) Lean and minerally, this Chard offers lime and white peach flavors that finish bone dry and clean. It's not a rich wine, but it is very elegant, with a good scour of bracing acidity.

Winemaker's Notes

This wine is a beautiful golden color, with aromas of apples, roasted nuts, toasted coconut and smoky oak. It is very full in the mouth with lots of weight on the palate. The flavors of this wine run towards apples and pears with less of the tropical characteristics normally present. It also has a softer acid structure than normal and a buttery/oaky flavor.
