    Winemaker's Notes:

    Light yellow in color, with tremendously attractive, complex aromas. The complex, multi-layered nose combines mineral notes with expressive tropical fruits. The effect is fresh and elegant, with toasted notes from oak ageing. The palate features bright acidity that balances the lush and creamy texture that resulted through its malolactic fermentation. Ends with a long, lingering, and pleasing finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Light, bright gold. Intriguing aromas of white peach, truffle, ginger and iodine, with hints of flowers and sweet butter. Dense and tactile, with an invigorating thread of smoky minerality giving the oily pit fruit and spice flavors a steely quality. The finish repeats the iodine and floral notes and lingers with excellent persistence. I'd love to taste this next to a high-end Saint-Aubin, or even a Chassagne-Montrachet.

    International Wine Cellar

    There is one white wine among the new releases, the 2008 Chardonnay Wild Ferment, which was barrel-fermented and aged in 21% new French oak. Light gold in color with an enticing perfume of buttered popcorn, mineral, baking spices, spiced apple, and pear, on the palate, it reveals a smooth texture, spicy flavors, and excellent balance. This excellent value can be enjoyed now and over the next 4 years.
