This starts off a bit nutty and funky, but give it time in the glass and it delivers bright aromas of nectarine and grapefruit in addition to the nut and dough notes. Despite this wine’s weight and richness, it’s crisply focused on the finish, where its grapefruit flavors really linger. It should prove relatively long-lived, but I’d still opt for drinking it over the next few years — J.C. (4/1/2014)
‘Both modern and traditional winemaking.’ Certainly shows some oak impact yet the Chardonnay characters and spine are clear and definitive. A fine and complex wine, serious, classy already yet with plenty of longevity.
