Winemaker Notes

This Chardonnay has been made to be crisp with fresh fruit characters and soft oak that will allow some maturation if required. The color is medium yellow with touches of grapey green. The aroma is emphasized by melon and fresh citrus fruits with a hint of soft French oak. The flavors are smooth with lingering melon fruits and subtle oak enhancing the varietal flavors, without overpowering them.

Critical Acclaim

WS 89
Wine Spectator

Bright and vibrant, this white is generous with its grapefruit, pear and spice flavors, remaining focused and hinting at pepper as the finish lingers. Drink now through 2014. 100 cases imported.

ST 88
International Wine Cellar

Bright yellow-gold. Ripe melon and white peach on the nose, with a touch of lemon rind adding energy. Plump and juicy in the mouth, with fresh honeydew and floral flavors and a late-arriving citrus note. Nervier on the finish, which leaves a dusty mineral quality behind.
