The nose has well pronounced buttery and creaminess that I am not very found of & one can find in some CA Chardonnay’s. Lemon, lime, tropical fruits, limestone, vanilla, just a touch of brown sugar with spring flowers.

The body is thick & full. The palate a touch astringent. Green apple, pineapple, lemon, lime, tropical fruits, weighty volcanic minerality, round acidity, rich finish that doesn’t sit well on my palate. I won’t be giving up my White Burgundy anytime soon for this one.
