Critical Acclaim

"This is a firm, dry, minerally Chardonnay. It's not blockbuster rich, but it is clean and vibrant and elegant. The flinty flavors are enriched with notes of pineapples and green apples, while oak and lees give hints of buttered toast and sour cream. A very fine, food-friendly wine that sommeliers should be aware of."
