Pure, balanced, energetic Chardonnay. Expansive nose of fresh-cut flowers, lemon curd, tropical fruits, vanilla. Silken in the mouth but with lively acidity. Ripe fruit flavors linger into the finish. This is one of those lovely Chardonnays that's full of flavor but light as air and utterly untiring to drink. I was surprised to find this wine had 14.5% alcohol - the alcohol is not at all intrusive. - HK 2014-09-19
