We closely monitor the crop load at this site, making fruit thinning adjustments so as to grow Chardonnay grapes that are elegant yet also maintain complex flavor components. This wine possesses a yellow-gold hue in the glass. Aromatic notes of lychee, honeysuckle, lanolin and lime pith are complemented by notes of vanilla. The palate has a silky, viscous feel marked by round notes of lemon oil, brioche, roasted hazelnuts and jasmine. While this wine has significant mid-palate weight, there is also a pleasant acidity to balance it out.
