BC: Before Cable
 
Vinified in 2500 liter casks and bottled in May of 1985
First vintage of 100% Chardonnay produced by Terlan
 
Delicate floral and talc laced perfumes greet the nose. This is fresh with nary a hint of oxidation but also a bit simple and shy.  On the palate this is gorgeous and at peak, round yet with bright acids supporting tart apple fruit. It’s a small scaled wine and getting a bit lean but so well balanced with a long citrus note on the elegant finish. 88pts
 
 
Stony on the nose with aromas of white peach, white flowers, and a hint of dusty, peppery spice.  Bright and gorgeous on entry with notes of candied apricot, waxy fruit, and nectarine skin. This is a touch more rustic on the palate, showing a bit of astringency, but at the same time it exhibits such purity of fruit and a long, remarkably clear finish filled with  pressed flower, dried lemon rind, and dried hay accents. 92pts

    I'm curious as to why you don't mention the color of the wines? It would seem particularly pertinent with aged whites...just sayin :>)
