Product Description

(made from 80% chardonnay and 20% pinot noir and aged on its lees for five years; disgorged June, 2012):  Pale yellow.  Racy, mineral-accented aromas of citrus and orchard fruits, plus a suave touch of toasty lees.  Bitter citrus pith and pear skin flavors give way to softer pit fruits in the mid-palate, with chalky minerality adding spine and cut.  Packs a serious punch but comes off as lithe and focused.  Finishes with excellent clarity and stony persistence, leaving a dusty mineral note behind.
