Notes from the Winemaker:

Lush and elegant with aromas of ripe Asian pears, baked red apples, crème brulee and a touch of oak. This full-bodied wine shows beautifully balanced acidity throughout the rich, creamy palate to the sumptuous finish. Pair with rosemary, lemon roasted chicken and grilled seabass. Drink now through 2025.

Ratings & Reviews


95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"A beautiful Chardonnay from Krupp Brothers, the 2014 displays crushed rock minerality in the aromatics, which also include honeysuckle, poached pear, white peach, and some tropical notes like tangerine. The color is a light gold and the wine full-bodied, layered and totally compelling. This is clearly one of the Chardonnays of the vintage. Drink it over the next decade." - Robert M. Parker, Jr. (Dec 2016)
