...sumptuous leesy, toasty, and honeyed pineapple scents with a touch of mineral. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with exquisite texture, a sexy, rich after-taste, and superb purity...
Lots of flavor, richness and finesse to this Chardonnay, with layers of ripe pear, citrus, fig, tangerine and melon unfolding gracefully. Turns elegant and polished on the finish, where the flavors show added depth and dimension.
Complex ripe, leesy aromas of baked apple, apricot, five-spice powder and vanillin oak. Fat, dense and minerally, with brisk, integrated acidity and a citrus skin character giving the wine good firmness.
