That’s got some vivacity to it. Love the verve and tension in this wine. Pineapple, apple skin, fleshy but vibrant. Good value.

Very "lemony". Lemon peel and lemon juice. Likely due to the high acidity for a California Chardonnay.

Given my proclivities for Burgundy close to the Beaune this is an exceptionally Californian discovery -both sapid, textural and fragrant. Keen to try more from these folk.

A real sense of style and elegance without being a twiggy wine. Nice work.
