There is purity to this wine that asserts itself as the first delicate notes rise from the glass. Citrus elements dominate with an underpinning of stone fruit indicate the precision and focus that drive this wine. A hint of reduction is conveyed by the note of struck match. The palate offers lemon pith and river stone with a mouthwatering acidity that offers freshness without austerity. Modest ripeness eliminates any heat on the finish from excess alcohol. Respectful treatment in the cellar allows the varietal character of old vine Chardonnay to enjoy the spotlight.
