This unusual white, while 100% Chardonnay, has a profile that reminded us more of a heavier-weight Viognier or Spanish Albarino than the typical buttery California Chardonnay. Deep golden/honey color, floral and herbal nose highlighted by notes of blood orange, lime, minerals, and white fruits. Weighty feel in the mouth, a touch of apricot in the finish. - WB exec team 2006-11-25
