WE 90 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - There’s no bones about the use of oak in this wine, which spent nine months enjoying the cradling effects of a good barrel, the majority French and 25% American. Ample fragrances of lemon and lime infuse the well-balanced wine that is also marked by crisp minerality, cinnamon toast and pear.
According to Wine Spectator - Clean and pure, with green apple, pear and honeydew melon flavors. Subtle spice and light oak details give this a delicate mouthfeel. Drink now.
Winemakers Notes - The 2013 vintage yielded what our winemaker calls a "perfectly balanced Burgundian style of Chardonnay," exhibiting expressive fruit including juicy pear, honeydew melon and fresh white peach alongside notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and turmeric. The oak (67% new; 34% seasoned) is subtle, providing warm notes of buttered toast and a lingering marzipan and vanilla crème finish.14.2% ABV.
