A dry rewarding vintage for this Chardonnay, which is year by year recognized for its characteristic layered "seamless" quality.This wine presents pages of different taste sensations.

First creamy yeast, followed by mild wood tones surrounded by vanilla and aromatic layers of apricot and cantaloupe. Finally resonating a long citrus and quince finish.
