Fresh lemon and orange zest on the nose, with hints of white flowers and chalky minerals gaining strength with air. Sappy citrus fruit and melon flavors are complemented by musky iodine and floral qualities and firmed by a bright mineral underpinning. Impressively vibrant chardonnay, with excellent finishing clarity and persistence.

The style is bright, focused and polished. In 2012, the Inox Estate impresses for its gorgeous overall balance. The vinification and aging in steel is a nice counter to the natural exuberance of the year.

This bottling provides a promising glimpse into the quality of the 2012s. It’s so rich and ripe in citrus and tropical fruits, you won’t miss the barrel influence. Try now with sushi, tuna tartare, or a salad of bitter greens, tropical fruits and feta cheese.
