Graceful and balanced, this has all the classic Chardonnay fruit character without the influence of oak or malolactic fermentation. Ripe nectarine and pear spring from the glass with aromatic purity, finding a kiss of minerality. It doesn’t lack for nuance or complexity and is surprisingly concentrated with nice tension from the tantalizing acidity. We could see it making a fine match for grilled fish or chicken.

Wine Enthusiast

This medium-bodied wine is graceful and well balanced, offering crisp lemon and green-apple flavors on a rather lean, tangy texture. It is nuanced and complex, and has a nice tension from tantalizing acidity.
