About This Wine

Color: brilliant shiny gold with hints of pear green

On the nose: explosion of pear, apricot and almonds with touches of brioche, minerality and white peaches

On the palate: fresh entrance evolving on vanilla bean and citrus flower lingering on orange blossom and star fruit

Wine Profile

Blend: 100% Chardonnay

Winemaker Notes:

"2012 proved to be a vintage of extremes. This is not because of frost, heat, or rain, but mainly due to the high yield of fruit. The growing season was ideal with no frost, a mild spring, and a very temperate, long growing season. This allowed all varietals to ripen to their optimum condition with significant concentration and complexity. The biggest challenges were to find space to ferment and to manage the tannin structure of the very thick-skinned red vintage. This means that winemakers who simply apply recipes will have a challenging year as tannin levels were at twice the average level."

- Jean Hoefliger
