    May 24, 2013 - This is the first release of a Chardonnay from this winery and it is quite a fine one. The wine is not over oaked, though it would be hard to miss it. A portion of the wine was fermented and aged in oak for 2 months and then blended with juice that was fermented and aged in steel. The nose shows no influence of oak at the start, though it becomes apparent soon enough, along with lovely peach and apricot, melon, and kiwi, and loamy dirt. The wine is medium in body yet fills the mouth nicely with fresh cut grass and straw flavors, along with a hint of oak, and nice tart citrus. The finish is nice with vanilla, grapefruit, baked apple pie, and Asian pear.

    This is a fine wine that is mevushal but does not show any ill affects from it. The fruit is ripe, tart, and bright, but balanced nicely with a hint of oak, and its influence. Drink UP now.
