Tasting NotesAged in 100% stainless steel, this wine is a celebration of the beauty and purity of the Chardonnay grape. Pale gold in the glass with a slight green tinge, it is filled with fresh and crisp aromas of lime zest, oyster shell, white meadow flowers, golden delicious apple, and white nectarine, all classic characteristics of the region of Chablis. Underneath the fruit core and saline minerality, lurks hints of cumin seed, curry leaf, and fresh-cut hay. The palate is immediately quenching as a lemon acidity washes over the tongue. This clean, fresh acid line drives straight from the front palate to the finish, making few stops along the way, yet carrying with it notes of sour lime and whispers of white peach. The briny minerality on the nose is present on the palate causing cravings for seafood, the ultimate food pairing. The finish is dry and has a pleasant length with tingling notes of sea spray and citrus.
