Really quite lovely, esp on day 2. Golden fruit, Meyer lemon, creamy vanilla, waxy texture (more semillon character than SB). Chardonnay but not, amazing value

Delicious white Bordeaux blend—lemon, buttery pineapple, gooseberry, toasty vanilla, and enough acidity to cut through all the richness

Nice silky feel, not to fruity or buttery, touch of pucker in the end, with just a hint of unicorn.

68% SB, 32% Sèmillon, this was a really well balanced effort. Early on the apple flavors were up front and as it warmed in the glass I was getting richly textured guava and pineapple. Glad to have a few more of these stashed away. First sentence on the back of the bottle ‘The world has plenty of Chardonnay’. While I do love Chard, i believe this to be a true statement!

Color of light gold. Nose of apple cider, mineral, ripe banana, and a bit sprite. Taste follows nose notes, with addition of good citrus acidity, ripe pineapple, honey, tinkling mouthfeel, and subtle mineral. Aftertaste is long and dominated by minerals and acidity. Pure, clean, and good flavors.

Really enjoyable white wine. Crisp, lots of body with touch of honeysuckle

Spectacular! So floral! Perfect with our pear gorgonzola pizza.
