A blend of Dijon 95 and Old Wente Chardonnay selections this complex and powerful wine has an amazing aromatic complexity of citrus blossom, honeysuckle and white peaches, with an opulent texture and layered flavors of candied citrus.

91 points, Connoisseurs' Guide (Oct. 12): “...the wine opens up to reveal a fair bit of richness layered on top of youthfully still nascent aromatics. The mix of green apples, minerals, roasted grains and toasted oak provide clear, varietally-aligned points of focus..."

91 points, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (May 2012): "Vivid yellow. A complex, spice-accented bouquet displays scents of poached pear, nectarine and smoky lees, with a mineral nuance adding aromatic lift...”

Very Good+, PinotFile (Jul, 22, 2012): "Tropical, exotic fruit aromas. Delicious flavors of pineapple, white peach and citrus, persisting on the long finish. Commendable acid spine that is nicely folded in to the entire fruit mix.”
