Medium gold color. Medium aromas of light white peaches, a lot of citrus, gravelly. Crisp acidity. Medium finish. Very fresh

Very nicely balanced and complex Chardonnay. I would not describe as Big or Intense, but it was full of flavor. Pronounced honeysuckle on the nose along with floral and mineral notes. This had a honey, orange marmalade characteristic that almost made it taste like there was some Semillon in the wine. Medium golden color, low acidity and very pleasant finish. Drank well with food and on its own

Starting to taste slightly flabby and lifeless; not very complex or delineated. The only flavor I could discern was Orange peel on the finish. The finish also showed an unusual - though not unpleasant - essence of mint, which is interesting for a Chardonnay. Medium weight on the palate, and an average-length finish. I would suspect this wine must have been much better and more distinctive in its younger days. Disappointing, considering this producer's reputation for making precise, vibrant wines.
