Pale gold with green highlights. Aromas of peaches, pears, smoke, vanilla, baked bread. Opens with ripe peach and apricots. Develops lightly creamy textures with a hint of butter. Apples, pears and stone fruit float over minerals and bread. Steel, smoke, vanilla, peaches, and tingly pepper predominate on long finish. Wonderful as an aperitif. Pair with roast poultry or with grilled full bodied fish. Well crafted wine, excellent balance of fruit and cellar flavors. Shows what a Finger Lakes Chardonnay can be. Very different expression of what Chardonnay can be than downstate versions. Classic slatey minerals, beautiful fruit, and clean flavors with enough winemakers cellar magic to achieve a striking balance. Great price for an exceptional wine.
