Finesse is the name of the game with this sensational barrel fermented Chardonnay. Packed with aromas and flavors of apple, citrus, fig and toasted hazelnut, it displays alluring hints of flint and mineral, perfectly balanced with notes of toast and spice.
"Medium straw-yellow. Lovely perfumed lift to the aromas of citrus peel, nectarine, nutty oak, marzipan and spices. Harmonious acidity gives cut to the nectarine, citrus and sexy oak flavors, with a hint of minerality contributing grip. Still a bit youthfully tight but seems a bit more showy early on than previous vintages. Finishes subtle and long. This was aged in 40% new and 60% one-year-old French oak for a year."
