Tasting Notes

Winemaker Trey Fletcher is creating texturally tantalizing wines that are exciting to sip now but built to last for years in the cellar. This shows lemon blossom, lemon skin, almond and macadamia scents, with a chalky minerality that's evident even on the nose. Racy, laser-focused acidity frames the palate, where lime, grapefruit and apple flavors unfold. Drink now through 2024.

Reviews & Scores

The production of this wine was 280 cases. It is made from grapes grown on vines that were planted in 1973. Light yellow gold in color the wine has a deep perfume that is faintly exotic with hints of pineapple and floral undertones. It has gorgeous fruit with exotic tinges and a faint underlying tinge of citrus. Balanced with a nice underlying crispness this is a lovely Chardonnay – Outstanding Plus.

The 2015 Marsanne has fresh apple, waxy lemon and lime leaves notes with a hint of grass. Light bodied and dry, it has a savory / yeasty character on the palate lifted by citrusy flavors and a racy backbone.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

Ripe juicy yellow peach and hints of fresh pineapple are lifted by the refreshing tang of citrus. Beautifully interwoven into this vibrant fruit is the subtle a richness of a gentle use of oak.Armit Wines91 points, Tim Atkin
