February 18, 2017 - Wow! An intense, tightly wound mineral driven chardonnay with citrus fruit (more lime than lemon) with just enough acidity to give it real life. The wine improved dramatically over time and as it warmed from 55 degrees. The bottle was empty by then so we can't say if it continued to improve. Maybe we can control ourselves better with the next bottle.1 person found this helpful Comment

February 18, 2017 - - Yellow gold color and aromas of banana and pineapple and has flavours of pineapple, banana and butterscotch with a medium body. Smooth texture with a long finish - Tropical fruit, banana on the nose....Carmel and butterscotch very smooth, a nice tartness but not bitter. Drinking very well now will open my next bottle same time next year.
