Medium-bodied, it packs a punch of flavor in the mouth with great layers of ripe fruits, savory/toasty notes and creamy citrus plus suggestions of white blossoms, with refreshing acidity to lift the long, long flavorful finish. This is all class. 675 cases produced.- EB collapse

Rocking notes of white currants, crushed citrus, brioche, and honeyed lemons all flow to a medium to full-bodied chardonnay that has a fresh, focused, crystalline texture that carries beautiful depth of fruit. It's another high-quality wine from this team that has loads to love. collapse
