89Aromatic white flowers give this Chardonnay a unique and lovely signature. The nose shows apples and magnolias. Pears and apples lead on the palate, some melon shows on the mid, all with white florals running throughout. Some citrus makes an appearance toward the finish, sweet Meyer lemon with a tart freshness. Drink with fried calamari. Recommended. 89 points.
