Review

Light yellow-gold. Fresh, mineral-tinged tangerine, quince and sweet butter on the nose, with a gentle floral quality building with air. Green apple, citrus fruit and toasted brioche flavors are deepened by iodine and lees, and perked up by excellent back-end lift and cut. Nothing heavy or loose-knit here but this chardonnay packs a serious punch.
