Lifted bouquet of tree ripened apricots, nectarine, orange rind, nutmeg and roasted vanilla bean supported by subtle oak spices. The rich mouthfeel and flavors of peach cobbler, orange blossom, tropical overtones, citrus blossom and creme brulee linger on the palate. Natural acidity and tropical fruit flavors slice through this wine's creamy texture and minerality. The Goldridge sandy loam soil at the Heintz Ranch conveys of sense of dusty minerals both on the nose and in the mouth. A great representative of a cool climate Chardonnay.
"Bright gold. Spicy, precise aromas of pear skin, yellow plum and citrus zest, with an intense floral accent. Deep, musky lemon pith and herb flavors are impressively taut and nervy, with a dusty mineral underpinning adding lift and cut. The long, dry finish shows very good clarity and a spicy, seductive floral tone."
