Green-hued yellow. Intense, mineral-accented aromas of lemon curd, orange, toasty lees, iodine and mace. Sappy, sharply focused citrus fruit and bitter pear skin flavors are lifted by a smoky mineral quality and pick up ginger and anise nuances with air. Chewy, gripping and precise on the very long, mineral-driven finish.

The 2010 Chardonnay Vine Hill Vineyard is another wine with superb aromatic presence. Silky and gracious on the palate, the 2010 stands out for its pure balance and harmony. Absolutely nothing is out of place. Sweet, beautifully articulated fruit, expressive aromas and a silky finish round out the impeccable Vine Hill Chardonnay. This is a wine of total finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.
