  • Kicking myself for not buying more as I thought this wine was electric. Tart, crisp, mouth-watering. Delicious.

  • Pale straw color. Nose was a bit closed at first but after about an hour it showed aromas of green apple, lemon custard, white flowers and crushed rocks. Mostly tart apple and citrus flavors on the palate with a clear streak of minerality. Taut mouthfeel with lots of acidity and a clean finish. The best sips were the last ones when the wine had been open for a while and warmed up to close to room temperature. This is really well made chardonnay in a restrained and precise style. Will hold my remaining bottle for another year or so.

  • The nose just exudes minerality, like rain water washing down a granite cliff, followed by a medium intense palate, somehow deeply flavorful and at the same time elegant and airy, with notes of stone fruit, lemon curd, wonderfully balanced acidity, and a long, tingly, mineral/saline finish. Maybe I'm kidding myself, but this could be a Grand Cru Chablis. Fantastic.

  • Popped and poured, followed approximately 3 hours. Light straw gold in colour, with a slight green tinge. On the nose, lemon drop, lime zest, honeydew melon, fresh herb, crushed rock, slight vanillin oak and custard. On the palate, quite lean, with medium plus acidity. The finish is of moderate length, framed with tastes of lemon zest, mineral and herb. This is my fourth experience with this particular bottling, all consistent notes. Not sure what the future holds for this wine, as it is leaner and higher acid than both the 2009 and 2010 vintages, as well as lacking a bit of complexity and exuberance. While well made, and quite enjoyable, I'm not sure this will hit the same heights, even with further time in the bottle. My recommendation would be to hold and hope for the best.
