Pale golden yellow. Tropical fruit, pine and wood spice notes in nose. Pine and spice with tropical fruit finish in mouth, semi dry, decent acidity. Mild skin astringency with minerality in aftertaste. Small producer worth seeking out. This bottle was a gift from my brother. I can’t find anything on the internet about this vintage though.

The brownish-gold wine smells delightful, all raisiny and lemony and full of brown sugar. The hearty palate shows the citrus beautifully and the acidity absolutely rips. Pair with any kind of after-dinner eats, from chocolate to fruit to a cheese plate.

This chardonnay is a gastronomic wine wit h will pair very well with chicken and pork dishes. I drank it with Sous Vide prepared salmon with lemon risotto and it was excellent and made the wine smoother. The complex flavors in the wine like lemon and custard are very intense and the the acid, fruit and mineral are very well balanced. A bone dry chardonnay and probably not everyones cup of tea. — 8 days ago
Tried this at my local store & liked it enough to pick up a bottle for around $15. Full bodied with oaky earthiness, subtle fruit, but fairly dry. Plum & cherry notes, hint of vanilla & black pepper. Pair with a good steak. 15% alcohol so watch out. — 5 days ago
Viscous, dark red wine. Ripe blackberries dominate the nose with some oak notes. A big, mouth-coating body with ripe blackberries, some light acid that cuts through, very low tannins and smooth oakiness. #gotm2020 — 14 days ago
