Tangerine, yellow orchard fruit, dried herbs and light tropical notes infuse the 2017 with notable character and breed. Creamy and textured, with tons of refinement, the Gnesa is impeccable from start to finish. This is such a gorgeous Chardonnay. Moreover, the comparison with the Estate Chardonnay is remarkably telling, as the Gnesa is a wine with real depth. -- Antonio Galloni collapse

The flavors are exotic and taut, with guava skin, citron and lemongrass proving unique and attention-grabbing. MATT KETTMANN collapse

Wine Spectator, June 2019
Succulent flavors of red peach, Gala apple and dried mango are loaded with exotic spicy notes. Plush midpalate, with a creamy finish that offers accents of dried tarragon. Drink now through 2023. 230 cases made. — KM

Medium-bodied, silky and intense in the mouth, it walks a lovely line between savory fruit, citrus and mineral character, with a great line of tangy acidity and a long, energetic finish. This is wonderful! - Erin Brooks collapse

It offers a more tropical style in its buttered lemon, caramelized pineapple, white flowers, and minty aromas and flavors. Rounded, textured, and fleshy on the palate, it has plenty of richness and depth as well as purity and freshness. It’s another high-quality Chardonnay that will drink well for 4-5 years. collapse
