Winemaker's Notes:

This Chardonnay is a complex and intense wine with subtle mineral tones elegantly complemented with a touch of citrus, pineapple and honey. Time in French oak barrels add well-integrated toasty notes together with an appealing and refreshing acidity. Very long and pleasant finish.
