“Fans of BIG, bold and unabashedly buttery (yes!) Chardonnay will adore this ultra-flashy new release. The color resembles liquid gold and the obsession-inducing nectar reminds us of the uniquely hedonistic thrills by Marcassin plus the richness of favorites such as Peter Michael or Aubert’s rarest bottlings. We particularly respect the core of freshness that supports the vibrant fruit such as grilled pineapple, apple strudel, and Summer peach cobbler. That sublime combination reminds us more of a Grand Cru Corton Charlemagne (from a ripe vintage such as 2015) than most California whites. Don’t miss the rare chance to own a few bottles of this dreamy Chardonnay!” - California Wine Advisors

Winemaker Notes
“With an abundance of fruit in the vineyard and stellar growing season conditions across the board, 2018 is a formidable vintage. Given the robust crop load, we were able to do a lot of fine-tuning in the vineyard and adjust cluster counts to gain optimal ripeness and flavor complexity. Before you even approach the wine, its color draws you in with a luminescent yellow-gold hue. Aromatic notes suggest lychee, lime pith, honeysuckle, brass, and crushed rock. The mouthfeel of the wine glides across the palate with sleek, dynamic layers of jasmine, lemon oil, lilac, white pepper, and green mango. The entire trajectory maintains electric energy; a balancing act of richness and lean acidity that carries all the way through the drawn-out floral finish.” - Thomas Brown
