Apricot apple, lots of vanilla, nice firm body of acids. This was a first bottle from the box, others should only grow

Should keep in the cellar, but to good to not drink. So will need to get more. Citric entry, with strong vanila woody chardonay.

Powerhouse oaked chardonnay. Tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, sharp citrus italian acids. Massive butter filming mouth feel. Went excelent with risotto with crab, and white fish filets.

Big complex Italian Chardonnay. Maybe too complex and not what I look for in a white wine.

Beautiful blend. Crisp and clean, with lemon curd in spades.

Oaky rich style that is balanced out by a linear through line of acidity. Well made, balanced and complex. Pomaceous fruit profile and floral (white flowers).

Let it breathe. Very oaked Chardonnay, with a surprising shock from the Grechetto. Very different and enjoyable, but some will find it too aggressive to enjoy.
