It may be a big wine, packed with ripe Chardonnay flavors, but it doesn't lose sight of its chalk soil origins, giving a firm, mineral, steely edge to the full-flavored peach and mango fruits. It is already in balance, but there is still a raw edge. Age for 2–3 years. Imported by Frederick Wildman & Sons, Ltd.
