This is a stunning bottle of wine and a welcome surprise from what one producer called 'the most challenging vintage in the past 15 years'. Light minerality and beautifully balanced fruit vs. acidity; unaggressive but shockingly complex. A radiantly delicious chardonnay that shows classic characteristics of melon, peach, almond, and a finish that lingers until the next sip. Well worth the price - You need to try this!

Radiant deep lemon with gold highlight. A diverse mix of melon, peach, caramel, and biscuit nose. Medium-full body with flavours of peach, citrus, and a rounded off with buttery mouthfeel. The acidity cleanses the palate through the long length. Enjoy for now, but it is also likely to develop further (Jan 2011).
