Incredible! Wasn't a true fan of oak until now. Notes of spice, butter, caramel, clove, apple and pear. Medium-plus bodied and a long excellent finish! Favorite Chardonnay so far, at least that is oaked.

Deep gold color. Nose of lemon, honey & vanilla. Vanilla, cream, pepper and citrus to taste initially when cold. After warming over a couple of hours of breathing, oak and brown sugar came in more strongly along with the citrus moving to tangerine.

A solid and safe Chardonnay that will appeal to many. It is rich, butter-ry with a creamy aftertaste. Would drink again.
