From the first whiff of lemon cream, ripe red apple, butter and nutmeg, through to the mouth-filling viscosity and long, lingering buttered fruit finish, this is one compelling Chardonnay. Full, rich, integrated – this is everything that a $60 California Chardonnay promises, at a fraction of the price. Best Buy.
