Golden yellow color. Fruity aromas and flavors of apple tart with mint leaf, spiced crushed pineapple, and cut flowers with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a polished, engaging, medium-long finish with accents of gherkin, pickled pineapple, flint, and nut skin with a suggestion of oak flavor. A delightfully savory French Chardonnay that whets the appetite.
