First impressions are of pear compote, lemon custard and a faint doughy/challah on the end; finishing with good, balancing acidity; enough body and weight throughout, and decent length. A smiling, delicious chardonnay and perhaps the best I've yet to try at this price point. I love it and I'm getting more!
