"Opens with a smoky, buttery brioche note, which lingers in the background as a spicy accent to the vanilla pudding and lemon curd flavors and opulent core of apricot preserves. Not a shy wine, but has a supple texture and plenty of expression on the long finish. Chardonnay, Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne and Chenin Blanc.

"This full-bodied, dry wine has vivid apple and butter aromas. The palate is ripe and mouthfilling, with a baked-apple flavor and a generous, broad texture. It offers the appeal of ripe fruit alongside a luscious mouthfeel." (WE)

Winery Notes:
They thought if he couldn’t see the world, then he wouldn’t make his mark. But a blindfold won’t hold him back. It just heightens his other senses. And whether they like it or not, his resilience will leave a lasting impression.

Chardonnay blended with white Rhône and aromatic varieties, equally bold and intriguing-a luscious entry of toasted hazelnut and mandarin is balanced by bright acidity and minerality. The finish is rich and creamy with flavors of lemon zest and caramelized sugar.

Inviting aromas of lychee, citrus, vanilla, and peach tart. Clean and refreshing flavors of juicy citrus and butterscotch are balanced by a vibrant richness.
