“ Lemon curd, baked apple, nutmeg and crushed hazelnut on the nose. Some vanilla, too. It’s full-bodied with a smooth, creamy texture. Layered and delicious. Drink or hold.”
Delightfully luscious, bright and crisp, with aromas and flavors of vibrant lemon citrus and tropical notes of pineapple, white pear, juicy Golden Delicious apple and a hint of lemon meringue, sea salt caramel and butterscotch. Mouth-watering with fresh acidity, leading to a long savory dry finish with white pepper spice and clove from the oak influence, the brightness of the Chardonnay fruit shines through, showcasing a classic example of Napa Valley Chardonnay.
