Bright yellow. Nuanced nose combines musky stone and citrus fruits, charred oak and a leesy note. Then broad and generous but not at all overly sweet, with notes of mirabelle and marzipan and a distinctly saline quality. This plump and rather full-bodied chardonnay finishes with good breadth and length. A tad warm on the end but with the chewy middle-palate material to support the alcohol.
