Bright yellow-gold. White peach, melon and honey on the nose, with a floral nuance that gains strength with air. Round and juicy, offering open-knit honeydew and pit fruit flavors and a touch of honeysuckle. A sneaky note of lemon rind adds cut and firmness to the persistent, sappy finish. This is the most approachable of this year's set of chardonnays.

Fresh apple and spicy floral scents are elegant and delicate in this medium- to full-bodied white, which is impressive for its fresh, snappy fruit vitality.
