Tasting Notes

Pristinely clear and golden straw in color, aromas of yeasty citrus, white flowers, ripe pear and rich crème brulée are inviting and satisfying all on their own. The palate then takes it to another level with poached pear, green apple, white peach and a nice touch of butterscotch on the finish. An excellent example of that delicate balance between bracing acidity and supple texture that makes the best Chardonnay such a pleasure all on their own or at the very best tables around the globe.
