This is a very young, taut and bracing un-oaked chardonnay with flinty notes, lemon curd, chive and green apple. It’s slim, zesty and mouthwatering with a grapefruity bitterness and hint of ginger. Very good persistence and intensity for a light bodied white. Chill moderately; pan fried white fish in lemon and herbs. David Lawrason, Toronto Life Eating and Drinking Guide, Tasted August 2012

An elegant and lean example of unoaked Chardonnay, with aromas of flint, lemon and green apple, the palate offers decent weight and structure with a mineral edge and a saline savouriness. Did some say oysters...?
