    Winemaker's Notes:

    Frequent stirring of the lees during barrel aging added a creamy texture to an already full-bodied wine, making for a rich, plush mouth feel, balanced with vibrant acidity. Powerful aromas of spiced apple, pear, and pie crust join minerally lemon-cream and toasty oak on the palate, adding up to a compelling and thoroughly satisfying experience for true chardonnay lovers.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Even if still very young, this deep and very well-filled offering is already starting to show a real sense of layered richness, and its fresh, nervy nose of citrus, stones, sweet oak and spice is followed up by lengthy, mouthfilling, ripe-apple flavors that are filled out by notes of crème brûlée. As well-balanced as it is so very rich, it is a wine of serious potential and will not reach its full potential for several years.
