Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) [95 pts Stephen Tanzer] ''Pale' bright yellow. Aromas of lemon curd minerals and crushed stone lifted by citrus zest. Intensely flavored but youthfully austere with brisk acid giving grip and shape to the complex notes of spices flowers herbs and minerals. This one has a lower pH than the '05 noted Kongsgaard' who told me that his 2006 chardonnays took a good three to four months to ferment their sugars (his new cellar maintains a consistent temperature of 58o).'
