Tasting Notes2011 was a cool year producing bright floral Chardonnay. The nose opens with intricate aromas of honeysuckle, lime, hints of wet stone and peach blossom. The lively palate unfolds layers of lemon-lime, apple, quince and white peach. The wine is bolstered by rich texture from the sur-lies aging in French oak barrels. The acid is bright and well integrated, promising an excellent age-ability. The finish shows lemon and fine oak ending perfectly dry with a harmonious acidity.
