Oaky, smoky, golden apples, Star fruit and a touch of tangerine.

This 50-50 blend of Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay is now eight years old and shoes a lot of oxidative qualities. A fair amount of buttery, lactic notes detract from the initial impression - it has citrus and golden apple aroma and flavors but wants more acidity. Stony minerality on the medium finish.

Lemon cream and melon tones. Fantastical tension between rich nose and lean body, full character and racy acids. Young, but wanting to drunk. Give her time and she will bloom.

Atypical Tuscan white blend combining Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco. Still incredibly young at this point, so quite closed. Comes off very Chablis-like with great lemon oil and seashell notes on the palate. This will be a neat wine to come back to after it has aged a bit.

What a beauty! Drank like a red with its weight and substance. Soooo beautiful and full of many surprises. Minerals while great acidity, the oak was casing around beautiful fruit. Loved this wine and had with freshly caught fluke with fried sage dressing niceeee night! This wine has a way to go

Stone cold stunner. Ripe. Coulda been grand cru or something like marcassin.

>>White peach and pine nut (custard?)...pineapple, pie crust, baked golden delicious apple, marigold, pavement, nuts and fabulosity. Great viscosity and salinity, plenty of acid left and just the right amt of cheesiness to be savory - fruity. Behold: 💛
