  • Now with some bottle age, this medium gold wine is in full form. An intense and complex bouquet displays elements of spiced apple, citrus peel, dried herbs and honeydew. Medium-bodied, crisply acidic, and with well-integrated alcohol (listed as 14.5%), it offers flavors which mirror the nose. Mouth-filling and almost viscous in the middle, it concludes with very impressive length. This is an impeccably balanced Chardonnay which has rewarded cellaring. Showing no evidence of "fatigue" at this point, it should provide pleasure for at least another 3-4 years. Drink now-2018.

  • Despite its pedigree, there is a generic simplicity to this wine which is rather endearing. There is an explosion of honeysuckle, tangerine and watermelon with some creamy oak notes on the finish. Well-balanced, ripe and delivered with much bombast, this made for great drinking with a garlicky chicken and celeriac remoulade dish.

  • Light-medium straw in colour. Peaches, butter, and pineapples on the nose. A bright chard with bright buttered stoney pineapples with a hint of oak with the acidity to help with the balance. Got this for under 20 bucks which is a decent price, and to echo the previous reviewer, would not buy if it were $30.

  • Aroma is a pleasant mix of honeydew melon, straw, and a hint of pear. Flavor is initially crisp with acid, but it quickly gives way to a buttery sensation. Flavor is a lot of pear and stone fruit and (surprisingly) pleasant straw. Bright finish.

  • Paid $30 at K&L. Thought is was closer to $20 bottle of wine.

    Light gold color. Hints of pineapple, grass, cut pine on the nose and palate.

    Did not get much butter at all. A bit of oak. Very smooth with a nice finish.

    Disappointed that I could not detect more fruit. In defense of wine, I may have consumed a bit cold.
