The 2015 vintage endowed this Chardonnay with a profusion of exotic, fresh aromas and flavors - honeydew melon, pineapple, plantains, honey, crème brulee, and mandarin peel - all made more enticing with bright acidity and a long, rich finish.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a perennially impressive wine, floral in a heady perfume of white roses. Fresh and fleshy, the expansive palate offers concentrated flavors of kiwi and pineapple. The wine was largely fermented in oak, then aged just over a year in French oak (75% new). It holds the oak well, ending bright in juicy acidity.

Wine SpectatorFeatures green pear and apple flavors, with pithy skin texture, making this a very nice effort that should benefit from short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2021. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
