With its vibrant, golden yellow color and generous nose suggesting honey, ripe peach and acacia flower, this wine makes a strong first impression. Sweet and succulent upon entry, Meyer lemon, wild honey, a kiss of French oak, and a bit of yeast emerge as the wine evolves in the mouth. This Chardonnay is voluptuous in terms of fruit, body, and texture. In addition to the pedigree of the vineyard sources, frequent lees stirring over an 8-month period was undoubtedly a major contributor to the hedonistic qualities of this wine.
