A Platinum Series exclusive pre-release!
Not yet released to the general public for sale, the wine has already won a prestigious Gold Medal at the recent New World International Wine Competition.
Produced in the Montrachet style, this is a huge, powerful Chardonnay, with a magnificently full bouquet of ripe fruit and oak that exudes from the glass. Intense, ripe fruit flavors with butter and cream overtones; nice depth; lots of complexity. This is the type of Chardonnay that will continue to develop for 3 to 5 years in the bottle just as other white wines begin to fade away.
The wine is unfined and unfiltered to retain flavors that other wineries typically strip away for cosmetic reasons. If the resulting sediment bothers you, simply decant before serving. A great food-wine—try it with grilled swordfish or seasoned roasted chicken.
