The perfect balance between a Burgundian and California-style Chardonnay from the high altitude “G Lot” in Gualtallary at 4,900 feet above sea level.
Beautiful pale-gold color with enticing aromas of lemon crème, baking spices and some notes of dulce de leche. The aromas carry through to the palate, and are joined by hints of tropical fruit, spiced baked pear, and a stony/mineral flavor that creates a stylish wine that seems part New and part Old World.
Pairs well with most fish, lobster, crab, chicken, and even many pork preparations. Particularly recommended with dishes using sautéed wild mushrooms or butter sauces. This wine will age well for years in a cellar.
A juicy and fruity white with dried apple and honey character as well as some flan. Full and flavorful. Drink now.James Suckling June 2017
At first, this high-altitude Chardonnay comes across as massively oaked, as if extracted from a wood pile. With time, it sheds its heavy oak blanket and shows secondary notes of spiced apple and melon. It's dominated by wood throughout, and if that's not your thing, this might not be for you. Full and generous, yet balanced; drink through 2020.Wine Enthusiast December 2017
Full yellow with a gold tinge. Deep, ripe aromas of fresh apricot, tropical fruits and smoky, spicy oak. Impressively fat, round and thick for the year, with its stone and tropical fruit flavors complicated by a savory umami quality and enlivened by sound underlying minerality. Rich, flavorful Chardonnay with considerable subtlety.Vinous July 2017
