Longtime Souverain winemaker Ed Killian's personal project, this 100% Chardonnay was given 20% new French oak, allowing the fruit to speak for itself in this wine. Pear and fig converge in balanced, voluptuous layers. Just a touch of ripe caramel-honey on the finish makes the wine seem heady and risqué.
