Tasting Notes (credit: Rick VanSickle)

  • I found it to have a sweet savoury profile on the nose and added flinty/saline notes before the quince, lemon biscuit and pear kick in, followed by subtle oak spices. It’s a fine, chiseled Chardonnay on the palate with an interesting profile of apple, pear, zesty citrus, touch of reduction and flinty minerality, mouth-watering acidity and vibrancy through a lifted finish. This wine intrigues me and I want more.
