Crystalline and pale pink colors. The sparkle is tiny and elegant. The first nose is mineral and flowery (Iris bloom) followed by aromas of small red fruit (raspberry, redcurrant) and freshly pressed citrus (grapefruit, mandarin orange). A very elegant nose. Very harmonious. The Chardonnay brings minerality and freshness, blended with more intense notes of wild strawberries. The finale is long and delicious.
"With a bouncy, lively bead and bright acidity, this is open-knit and accessible, offering flavors of black raspberry, kirsch, biscuit and fresh ginger. Delivers a clean, minerally finish. Disgorged May 2012. Drink now through 2016. 800 cases made."
"Bright orange-pink. Vibrant, mineral-accented aromas and flavors of strawberry, cherry and blood orange, with a sexy floral quality gaining strength with air. Shows very good energy and clarity, finishing powerfully, with lingering minerality."
