Barrel fermented with wild yeast in French oak, 34% new, and matured for 10 months in oak, the 2010 Chardonnay offers a youthfully closed nose of fresh peaches and cream, cedar, lightly toasted bread and apple tart. Medium bodied and packed with nervy flavor intensity in the mouth, it has crisp acidity and a silken texture, finishing long with lingering honeyed toast notes. Still very tight, consider drinking it 2012 to 2016+.
A quiet wine built on flavors of apple, honey and almonds, this is sweet even as it finishes clean. It has an Indian Ocean freshness and impressive persistence of flavor for the price. Chill it for grilled abalone.
Light yellow. Nectarine and lemon curd on the nose, with complicating notes of smoky lees and white flowers. Spicy, gently sweet orchard fruit flavors show very good depth and clarity, picking up a toasty note on the back half. Finishes broad and smooth, with the nectarine and spice notes repeating. This is already delicious but its depth suggests it will reward aging.
