Big on the nose with layers of toasty, buttery, and creamy nuances over floral leesy notes and intense lime zest and pineapple fruit. Broad yet fairly focused in the mouth, this delivers lots of clear, crisp lemony fruit, with creamy edges and lovey length. There's a little finesse here as well, though this remains firmly classic American Chardonnay with lemon and citrusy fruit streaked by vanilla on the moderately long slightly pithy finish.

"Fresh and vibrant, offering olive-accented pear and spice flavors, lingering on the polished finish."
