Fantastic, easy drinking California chardonnay. The butterscotch notes and the golden hue have made this one of my favourites.

Decent, typical of the style for an oaked California Chardonnay.

Lots of butter, caramel, tropical fruits on the nose.

Creamy in the mouth, bursts with fruit and with a medium-plus finish. Slight acidic finish.
