This beautiful Chardonnay is all about elegance and complexity. Light as a breeze but compelling to drink. Every mouthful seems to suggest a subtle new flavor component - creme caramel, buttered nuts, peach, citrus skin, papaya, sweet spice, spring flowers - yet nothing is dominant or overblown. Sensational balance and persistence in the mouth - amazing considering how graceful and subtle this wine is. A wine that makes you want another sip, no matter how many sips you've had. - HK 2015-08-08
