Bright lime green hue. Hints of peach, marmalade and orange blossom on the nose. Green apple fruit flavours on a full creamy palate. Calling Card: Only very lightly oaked for everyday drinking.
Wine Spectator 87 points - A lively style, with lots of crunchy green apple, kiwifruit and lime flavors, backed by a floral hint on the open, breezy finish. Drink now. 12,000 cases imported.-JM

Vinous 88 points - (aged on its lees in stainless steel and 25% French oak for four months; includes 3% Viognier): Pale bright yellow. Sexy, inviting aromas of peach, tropical fruits, flowers and soft brown spices, plus a whiff of toasty oak. Creamy, inviting wine with lovely sweetness to its soft citrus and tropical fruit flavors. This seamless, easygoing wine is kept firm by nicely integrated acidity and a touch of minerality--not to mention some unabsorbed CO2. Finishes with an edge of toasty oak. An excellent inexpensive Chardonnay.

This understated Chardonnay shows enough ripeness of tropical fruit without being overdone
