    Fantastic white Alsace blend of chardonnay and auxerrois. For an '05 this is drinking great right now! Beautiful golden color, nose of creamy lemon pith and honey. On the palate there's more of that creamy lemon cheesecake along with ripe golden delicious apple, dried apricot, creme brulee, and some fine acidity to balance out the fruit. Read More
