Peach, nectarine, lemon and grapefruit aromas with flinty and pithy allure. The palate has a core of intense peach and citrus flavors with driving mineral and stony undertow to the long, fresh finish. Stunning value here. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

Solid, sturdy chardonnay with plenty of weight and concentration. Peppery tannins with grapefruit, stone fruit and a hint of oak. Slightly grippy phenolics together with fruity acidity offer a firm structure.

Texturally, this cuvée offers a sense of flow; it is relaxed in its own skin but provides welcome tension on the precise finish thanks to a line of firm acidity that will leave you smacking your lips. The 20% new oak is well integrated, contributing delicate nougat flavors, and allowing the subtle nectarine and honeydew melon flavors to shine on the medium-length finish. -- Rebecca Gibb MW
