Light golden in color, this Chardonnay possesses multi-faceted aromas of apricot, melon, and tropical fruits on top of vanilla, dark toast, and lees. Very ripe and rich in the nose, yet steely crisp and mineral-laden in the mouth. I'm not sure all the components here have come together perfectly, but it's still a pretty compelling and fun Chardonnay to drink. - HK 2013-12-14
