Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Wine Enthusiast
Hints of waxy honeycomb and grilled peach whisper on the nose of this wine, with assertive threads of baking spice, honeysuckle and lemon verbena weaving throughout. The plush palate is smooth and round, though with ample lift to enliven the finish and the ripe fruit flavors of melon, toasted apple and creamed pear.
90 pts Vinous / Antonio Galloni
Medium yellow. Ripe stone fruits, mandarin orange, hazelnut, flowers and a strong element of exotic spice oils (cinnamon red hots?) on the nose. Then surprisingly dry, even bracing, on the palate, but very dominated by its spicy oak character (Colin uses 450-liter Rousseau Piano oak barrels). I find that the oak element is currently blocking the fruit, but this Chardonnay boasts lovely leesy complexity, energy and definition. Rating: 90(+) Points.



Winemaker Notes

This Chardonnay displays bright aromas of mandarin orange and ripe honeysuckle. The palate is an array of citrus fruits with a hint of jasmine and hazelnut. The wine has great length and is nicely balanced with a clean, fresh lime-backed acidity.
