Winemaker Notes
This wine begins with beautiful floral aromas, as well as notes of candied lemon zest and crushed limestone minerality. The palate offers a graceful entry, with a touch of initial acidity that accentuates flavors of grapefruit and fresh lemonade. Though bright and balanced, there is a lovely rounded mouthfeel to this Chardonnay that adds to a long, satisfying finish.
