"The 2018 Chardonnay has a generous bouquet of wild peach and pressed white flowers. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, nice structure, and bitter lemon and tangerine peel on the persistent, peppery finish. What initially seems like a straightforward Chardonnay is, in fact, quite complex and satisfying. Recommended." - 92 Points, Vinous
