Tasting notes

Score: 93+

Critic: Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Date tasted: October 2012

A portion of the 2010 Chardonnay comes from 1981 vines and two-thirds of the fruit it Mendoza clone. Fermented in oak barrels, 15% new, and using all natural yeast. 100% malo-lactic is employed and it is matured 18 months in barrel. The nose offers an impressive array of citrus, toast and earth aromas with notes of lemon peel, orange zest and grapefruit jus plus hints of crushed stones, cedar, white blossom and pineapple. The palate gives a wonderful concentration of citrus and stone fruit flavors, with just enough toasty oak offset by crisp acid, and finishing long and creamy. Tantalizingly good now, it should cellar to 2016+.
