Very "lemony". Lemon peel and lemon juice. Likely due to the high acidity for a California Chardonnay.

Given my proclivities for Burgundy close to the Beaune this is an exceptionally Californian discovery -both sapid, textural and fragrant. Keen to try more from these folk.

A real sense of style and elegance without being a twiggy wine. Nice work.

Bright citrus, Meyer lemon, tart green apple and then the faintest touch of creamy peach and cotton candy.
