Always my go to vintner - a deep golden yellow in the glass, vanilla and tropical notes, a BIG chardonnay. Very good - no issues with the vintage.

Nothing to add to my last review of this wine. Still an outstanding example of how some winemakers can perfectly balance new and old world styles.

6 barrels. That's a big Chardonnay in a 1/2 bottle. I generally prefer an Unoaked Chardonnay, but this is elegant

Far less tropical than the Hyde, showing more citrus notes with hints of vanilla. Still a rich wine that is balanced with a great acidity. I love how Tor manages to create beautiful Chardonnays that manage to show aspects of both Burgundy and California at the same time and seem teeter just on the edge of restraint. Delicious.

Delicious start to an evening at Chef and the Farmer. If I had not seen this wine’s TNs, would have thought steel tanks were used. Will seek out other TOR chards after this evening

California style Chardonnay. Tropical notes. Citrus. Lasting finish.
