Bright yellow. Pungent orange pith and pear aromas show impressive
power as well as energy. Deep, focused and palate-staining, offering intense pit and
orchard fruit flavors lifted by a tangy
citrus quality. Rich but structured chardonnay with very good finishing clarity
Light yellow-gold. Ripe pear, nectarine and orange on the fragrant spice- and smoke-accented nose. Picks up an exotic iodine quality and a sneaky licorice nuance with air to go with its potent orchard and citrus fruit flavors. Finishes sappy and very long, with firm grip and lingering smokiness. One-third of this wine went through malo and 10% of the barrels were new.
