Expert Reviews

89 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011

(from a blend of sites):  Pale bright yellow.  Pure aromas of musky nectarine, grapefruit and pineapple.  Boasts good thickness and richness for a chardonnay in this price range; the dominant characteristic is lively stone fruit flavors.  Finishes with good length.  Only 35% of this wine went through malolactic fermentation, and the wine got only 25% new oak aging.
