They consider these wines to be a quintessential representation of the region. They are excellent now and promise more for the future.
An understated wine with flesh and drive. It is a fruit driven Chardonnay with predominantly citrus on the palate with clean acid to bite and a freshly grated ginger spice note. There is a lovely understated creaminess from the lightly toasted oak and yeast lees. The wine stays around for a minute long finish.
