    This Chardonnay has aromas of citrus, toasted almond and apple. The palate is focused and bright, with grapefruit, nectarine and peach. The acidity is firm and linear, giving backbone to the orchard-fruit core and carrying through to a long fragrant finish. Rated 91/100 by Robert Parker and Bob Campbell.
