Heather honeyed, apricots, ripe peach, overripe pineapple, white and yellow florals, thick and waxy, soft sweet minerality and a very long rich finish.

A youthful Chardonnay with a lovely aroma and balanced oak. Perfect with Welsh Rarebit, or cheese soufflé.

Pale clear yellow. Somewhat reductive at first, with a sharp, bitter swampiness. With 20 minutes of air it softens, offering aromas of struck flint, buttered nuts, sour melon, and citrus. Full-bodied with a creamy texture, it leaves the impression on the tongue of lemon butter, sweet daffodil, steel, and wet earth. The finish is somehow both lush and stony. A curious wine—or maybe capricious, like a sprite in springtime. 13% abv | $77 (sample)
