Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

365 cases. 75% Chardonnay 15% Guwerztraminer 10% Riesling
Fresh and steely. Light and bright. Aromas of citrus, apple, metal, and some sweet spice. Repeats on the palate with minerality and honey. Mouth cleansing finish. Aperitif, mussels in white wine sauce, lobster bisque. Yum! Great value.
A blend of 75% Chardonnay, 15% Gewürztraminer and 10% Riesling that delivers aromas of buttermilk, apple, white peach, and steely minerality, plus notes of white flowers. Juicy with a touch of the exotic added by the Gewürz. Refreshing acidity, and a long, bright and lifted finish. A bistro-style wine with a stately overtone. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Sept. 2013
