    Winemaker's Notes:

    Brilliant, light blonde, white gold color, with all things white in the aroma, from white spring flowers of daphne, gardenia, and citrus to hard Christmas candy, white peach, crisp pear, and white tea. There are spearmint, honey, and ambrosia hanging in the air and austere river rock, bright acidity, apricot, ginger, and golden plum complexity on the palate. The texture is broad and rich (and with very good acidity!), rounded in the mid-palate, showing a borderline minor sweetness that turns on the salivation response. Ends with a spicy, tangy burst at the finish. A lot to love, but with a refreshingly low alcohol. One of our best.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Another exceptional effort from Chehalem in 2007, this stainless steel-fermented wine offers crisp, clean and racy flavors of fresh cut pear, lime skin, hints of apricot and a thrilling minerality. As it rounds off a bit in midpalate, it introduces hints of honey that continue into a finish that demands another pour.

    Light, silky and appealing for its pear and gentle spice flavors, lingering on the open-textured finish. This is special for its subtlety and the way it surprises on the finish with unexpected length.

    Wine Spectator

    Crisp, fresh and lively. Medium bodied with fragrances and flavors of pear, white peach, melon, blossoms and the smallest touch of honey.
