RATINGS

96Wine Spectator

Opulent and decadent, quite oaky, with toasted coconut and mango. Thick Chardonnay that stays on an even keel thanks to sharp acidity. Blends ripe fruit with mineral, dried herbs, honey and pear tart.

95+ Stephen Tanzer

Very ripe aromas of peach, dried fruits and white flowers, with a strong note of wet stone. Dense, thick and powerfully structured; a real mineral bath in the mouth.

95Burghound.com

With astonishingly elegant aromas of green spiced apple, hints of exotic notes and citrus with intensely mineral flavors that are crystalline in their purity and detail. This is a complete wine with mind boggling purity...

91-93The Wine Advocate

...boasts toasted mineral scents. This medium-bodied wine is vinous, deep, and packed with floral, mineral flavors.
