The 2012 vintage gives the wine all the characters I love in this Chardonnay, just more of them. Your glass swims with floral aromas and flavors of white peach, honeysuckle, grapefruit peel, kiwi and toasted almond - a gorgeous, juicy bowl of fruit held together with pleasing minerality and lively, bright acidity.

Wine EnthusiastRichly made, this offers juicy stone fruit such as peach alongside more unusual flavors of fennel and kiwi, a streak of minerality running throughout the more weighted layers. A fantastic food wine, it can be paired with plates of cheese and charcuterie, even foie gras where it's legal.
