Color: Golden straw.
Nose: The first nose delivers notes of honey and lemon. After a swirl,
honeysuckle flower and d'Anjou pear become more evident.
Flavor: A silky texture with flavors of lemon cream, white peach and pear
progress into caramel and butterscotch with mineral accents.
"Gold hue with a brass glint. Fresh peach and apple aromas with a whiff of banana peel. Flavors of peach nectar and apple deliver a zing of fresh acidity. Drying mineral impressions surface in the crisp, lengthy finish."
The Wine News
"A lovely Chardonnay that’s marked by a steely minerality that braces and provides structure to the pineapple, lemondrop, honey and buttered toast flavors. Feels really elegant and creamy in the mouth. Easy to find, with nearly 13,000 cases produced, and a good price for the quality."
Light & Crisp
Used to like this a lot more with the earlier vintages. Seems to have lost something, and just not as impressive as used to be. It's still a fine wine, but lacks the pizzaz it used to have.
