Really digging this bottle on International Chardonnay Day. Light gold in the glass, the nose is pure chard with apple and baking spice dominating the nose, along with some nuttiness and a bit of buttered popcorn. These flavours replay on the palate with the ripe apple notes dominating. It's medium-bodied with excellent acidity and a truly long finish. Enjoyable now, but would love to try this again in a year or two. Tasted May 2013.
