A wild, intense bouquet displays scents of candied lemon, pear, jasmine & iodine with a strong saline component & a hint of anise. Smoky, penetrating & deeply concentrated orchard & citrus fruit... outstanding clarity & persistence.
...big, broad-shouldered frame. Orange blossoms, honey, wild flowers, mint & sage all take shape in the glass. A decidedly savory Chardonnay, the 2011 impresses for its complexity. Intensely aromatic notes reappear on the finish.
Very tight, with a compact core of ripe apple, spice, honeydew melon and ripe fig flavors.
