This 100% barrel-fermented Chardonnay leads you seductively with a softly fruity approach, filling out throughout the mid-palate with a lovely blend of stone fruits. Layers of sweet cream, spicy, pepper and hazelnuts keep it interesting right into a lingering finish. The length and texture really set this wine apart from the pack.
