Nicely balanced, flavorful Chardonnay that manages to combine satisfying richness with a great sense of elegance and style. Slightly toasty aromas of spiced pear, caramel, roasted nuts, and subtle tropical fruits. Very clean and precise feel in the mouth, with a bit of that nice mineral water edge. Still youthful and fresh, may even get better. - HK 2012-07-07
