K&L Notes

91 Wine Front: "Kicks off with smoke and nougat scents, some toffee apple character, sniff of charred lime. Tangier than expected in palate, some warmth, wood spice, flinty character, mouthwatering acidity. Toastiness lingers in the finish. Power packed style, but has a freshness too, curiously. Like bold chardonnay? Here it is."

    This is a dynamic Chardonnay that is not shy about showcasing its flavors and richness. I find it very similar to a cooler climate California Chardonnay with it's subtle oak presence and fuller mouthfeel from the lees aging. While it is on the bigger, richer side, it is still very vibrant and balanced out nicely by the Marlborough acidity. If you dig California Chard, this is a spot on choice for you!

    Blind I thought this was a much higher end Chardonnay. Although the new world ripeness shows through, there are a lot of Burgundian qualities here, a lovely flinty smoky hazelnut nose, rich and expressive layered over beautiful peach laced ripe apple fruit. The oak while present is not overwhelming at all, and absorbs well into the mid palate. Framed with lovely acidity and a stony edge to the finish there is little to argue with here, its' a lovely complex chardonnay at a fantastic price.
    Top Value!
