From magnum. I have been fortunate enough to have enjoyed a number of PH Chardonnay from magnum bottles and so far they have all been magnificent even if they have been really old!

Color me impressed. Holding together quite well with fruit equally matched to acid and body.

A little beeswax surrounds pure tropical aromas and flavors of mango, pineapple, and Banana.

Tasting notes from Patz & Hall.. “Pine Forest, licorice, dried apricot and bees wax on the nose meet a rich and round palate of dried pineapple, peach, and clove.” I would say this has very well integrated oak and high quality fruit and tends to be more on the savory side with some thyme/herbal notes and definitely dried tropical fruits as the notes indicate. Round and full palate all the way through the long finish.

Nicely integrated oak with this. Just enough butter and coconut to make it pleasant and some great mango and other tropical fruits. Great texture without being too creamy. Would like to have another one of these.
