Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A robust Chardonnay from Sonoma aged in a combination of small oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. The result is just the way I like my Chardonnay. Deep lemon colour with intense aromas of apple, pear, tropical fruit, butterscotch, smoke. The palate is rich with caramel apple, toast, butter and a long toffee finish. Liquid gold. Serve chilled. Pair with planked salmon, poultry, turkey with stuffing or on it's own.
Tasted: April 2015
The Chardonnay grapes this this full-bodied California white wine were selected from cool climate Sonoma vineyards. The wine was fermented in small oak barrels and stainless steel tanks and then aged on its lees. - Community Wine Reviews
