    Winemaker's Notes:

    This fine wine has a pale, gold color with tinges of green reflecting its youth. The nose shows typical aromatics of citrus and lime with light, toasted notes. There is a definite minerality on the nose, reflecting the cool terroir of the Elgin region and the microclimate of the vineyards on these rolling hills. These citrus, lime and brioche aromatics continue onto the mid-palate. The wine reflects a balance between fruit and natural acidity and the long finish shows balanced oak integration.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright yellow. Musky peach and apple aromas are complicated by a leesy nuance. A major step up in concentration from the basic chardonnay, with bright acidity framing and lifting the fruit-driven flavors of peach, lemon and pineapple. Finishes firm and persistent, with good flavor authority.
