My favorite Chardonnay producer (not my favorite vineyard) but the house style is unmistakable. Light golden in color. The nose has a lovely lemon vanilla creme quality to it with nice minerality. This vineyard also seems to have a slight pine quality which while good is a bit harder to match with food. Nice balance. Good acidity. The palate has the same flavors with the vanilla less in the foreground and the minerals more prominent. This bottle was paired with Japanese foods and it worked very well.
