Brilliant aromas of citrus oil, green apple, and hazelnut soar forth. The entry is smooth and the wine impeccably balanced with pear and white peach flavors backed up with pretty minerality and excellent length. There is good dimensionality to this wine and clear aging potential

A simply fantastic wine and certainly one of the best chardonnay’s we have ever offered. It comes to us from a very high-quality operation (and winery partner) whose own chardonnay ranges from $30-40 per bottle. Our wine is made the exact same way theirs is with a partial malolactic fermentation (just enough to soften the edges) and about 25% new French oak (just enough to elevate the gorgeous fruit). This is chardonnay of uncommon elegance and sophistication; a beautiful wine that you would pay $100 for at a restaurant and still order a second bottle. There is a purity of fruit here and a freshness you will never find in another $13 bottle of wine.
