About

92

"A rich and flavorful chardonnay with hints of vanilla and sliced cooked apple. Full body, plenty of fruit and hints of toasted oak. Only about 40% new oak and 20% malo - this gives it a fascinating brightness and richness. Better 2016."

Product Description:

"Very distinguished golden color. The nose offers outstanding notes of ripe tropical fruits, “golden berries,” bananas, peaches, apricots and grapefruit, along with the asparagus notes that are characteristic of Chardonnay from Casablanca. Its 10 months in contact with French oak also confers elegant notes of toast and vanilla and heightens the lactic notes of butter and toffee. The palate is fresh with pleasing acidity, medium volume, and a long and very pleasing finish." - Winery
