From an extreme, cool-climate estate vineyard, this Chardonnay is remarkably complex, golden in color and semi-rich in lemon chiffon and intense caramel. Yet it holds back ever so slightly on the lusciousness by offering crisp, tingling acidity. Orange blossom delights in terms of aroma and flavor, with an accent of fennel, too.
