The result of blending the 3 different Chardonnay vinifications is concentration and complexity that combines fruity aromas -green apple, citrus, stone fruits- with those of butter, cream, and toast. The bright acidity balances the layers of flavors and the oily, rounded palate. Well-integrated oak. Long finish. Ageing potential.
