This Chardonnay is barrel fermented in 30 percent new French oak, and approximately 85 percent of the blend through malolactic fermentation. The finished wine shows luscious aromas of ripe red apple, cantaloupe, fresh citrus and vanilla bean. On the palate, a creamy mouthfeel introduces flavors of honeydew, pear tarte tatin, lime zest and vanilla spice. The wine finishes with vibrant acidity and a touch of minerality.
Not thrilled too sharp. Maybe wrong year.
