Textbook, cool-climate chardonnay, although from a warmer vintage than is often found in the Finger Lakes. Intense and aromatic, with meyer lemon, white flowers and hints of nutmeg. Ripe mango and pear melds with a stony minerality on the palate, both elegant and creamy with subtle spices. The persistent, succulent finish includes apples, tropical and citrus fruits, along with a vanilla pastry accent. Drink or hold for another 5-12 years.
