Delightfully luscious, bright and crisp, with aromas and flavors of vibrant lemon citrus and tropical notes of pineapple, white pear, juicy Golden Delicious apple and a hint of lemon meringue, sea salt caramel and butterscotch. Mouth-watering with fresh acidity, leading to a long savory dry finish with white pepper spice and clove from the oak influence, the brightness of the Chardonnay fruit shines through, showcasing a classic example of Napa Valley Chardonnay.
Lemon curd, baked apple, nutmeg and crushed hazelnut on the nose. Some vanilla, too. It’s full-bodied with a smooth, creamy texture. Layered and delicious. Drink or hold.
