Wine Description

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.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) At the sight is brilliant, with beautiful pale yellow hue. At the nose clear fragrance of ripe fruit and fine nuances of spice, wood and minerals. The palate is satisfied in full until the end, with an excellent balance between acidity and alcohol, it also appreciates its light final of almond.
