Winemaker's Notes

Light straw color. Aromas of caramel and apple, with notes of citrus blossom. Balanced acidity, with a long, bright finish and wonderful minerality. On the palate notes of vanilla, layered with honey and golden apple. Much like any white Burgundy, this Chardonnay will benefit from time in the bottle to blossom fully. Mouthfeel is medium full, with a nice entrance, broad midpalate, and a creamy, long finish.
