Wine Description

Very dry, a lean, austere Chardonnay currently marked by aloof flavors of lemons, limes and oak. Yet there's something going on. As the wine warms in the glass it becomes richer, showing hidden pineapple tart, macadamia and creme brulee. Firm, minerally acidity is there throughout, making for a mouthwatering cleanliness.

    (2001 Vintage) "The compelling 2001 Chardonnay Unfiltered possesses a restrained but powerful bouquet of citrus oils intermixed with lemon blossoms and buttery popcorn presented in a full-bodied, layered, textured style with gorgeous richness. It is a powerful, intense Chardonnay that is performing far better out of bottle than it did from barrel last year. It will drink well for 6-7 years."
