The Tasting PanelChamomile, almond butter and cookie dough are complex aromas from this exquisite white wine grown on Hahn Family Wines Lone Oak and Smith Vineyards. Aged for 10 months in 35% new French oak, 65% neutral oak, the resulting balance and elegance is apparent. Mouthfeel is sumptuous but not necessarily creamy. Acid is lean and tight, with a line of minerality whispering on the sidelines. Lemon oil and orange blossom present mid-palate and it remains graceful to the finish.
Wine SpectatorA toasty style, with flavors of pear, apple and ripe melon, flanked by plush, tropical accents. Shows spicy richness on the glistening finish. Drink now through 2021. 13,000 cases made.
