Winemaker's Notes

This pale straw Chardonnay has brilliant green hues. Its nose displays lemon, lime and subtle spice characters. On the palate, it offers white peach and pear characters that combine with a creamy/nutty mid palate and a cleansing lemon finish.

Critical Acclaim

"White values $20 and under. Tasted and recommended, but no tasting note given."
89 Points

"This is ripe, delivering a mouthful of peach, pear, spice and cream flavors that mingle effectively on the long, lively finish. Drink now through 2010. 5,000 cases imported."
88 Points

"Green-tinged yellow. Fresh melon and peach aromas are complemented by jasmine and subtle leesiness. Light-bodied honeydew and pear flavors are given a bitter edge by lemon pith and brightened by crisp minerality Finishes with sneaky persistence and an echo of citrus zest."
88 Points
