Green-gold in colour, lime-zest, some tropical fruit and honey on the nose with a hint of vanilla and toast, a bright palate with citrus and fresh apple overlaid with a touch of honey and toast again with a pure finish. This as lean a style of Chardonnay as you will find in the USA, or indeed anywhere in the New World. For once, comparison stylistically with Chablis does not seem ridiculous.
