Fruit heavy nose, a bit smoky, with strong smoked meats on the oily mouth, like sopressata. Pears and apple on the finish. Read more

Mineral and notes of green apples. In the mouth there's caramel and toffee. Nice medium body, but had a tart musty finish which I was not a fan of. Read more

This has a slight green, almost vegetal note that recalls green apple skins and adds some complexity to the bright orchard fruits of the nose. On the palate this is silky and finely textured with lovely purity to the fruit. As on the nose, the flavors tend to the white peach, apple end of the spectrum with a refreshing squirt of limy acidity bringing up the rear. The finish is very apply and refreshing with good length, ending on a steely bit of apple seed spice and white floral tones. A focused style of Chardonnay that would be perfect with shellfish, raw or simply prepared. 87pts

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes The Chardonnay is not mauled by a crusher but only whole-bunch pressed (as in Champagne). All movement of grapes, must, and juice is done by gravity feed without damage from the pumps impellers. All are kept in low temperature controlled-refrigerated tanks to maintain the fruit values. The final result is a superior wine!
