Grapefruit, apple and walnut aromas lead the nose on this graceful blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Nero. The smooth, creamy palate offers pear, lemon zest and roasted almond alongside soft bubbles and fresh acidity. It boasts enough depth and complexity to age for several years. Drink now through 2018.
