This is what cool climate chardonnay is all about. There's a ton of the flinty minerality to go along with the lemon-lime, stone fruit and slight oak spice on the nose. On the palate, it's medium-bodied and has mouthwatering acidity with an incredibly long finish. Pure elegance! Seriously wish I had picked up more than one bottle, especially at this price (was dropped from $42). Can't even imagine how this would taste in 7 or 8 years. Tasted April 2014.
