Wine Description

(2007 Vintage) Aromatic nose of apple, citrus fruits and honey complemented by sexy oak. Broad, rich and lush, but with sneaky lemony acidity giving shape and lift to the flavors of peach, citrus fruits and smoky oak. A big wine, but the 2007 vintage apparently yielded chardonnay with very good acidity here. Finishes round and spicy, with a leesy complexity.
