The Corkscrewer Report
"A bouquet of sweet honeysuckle, butter, ripe apple and white flowers is a
lovely introduction to a Chardonnay so creamy and luxurious. Rounded and with good
weight on the body, this is a mellow wine save for the lively acidity of citrus.
Just waiting to be paired with a high-end meal involving crustaceans. Striking many
aspects of one’s fancy, truly a romantic and intimate wine, likely leading to lofty
conversations about dreams, world travel, favorite novels or why no one can make
good romantic comedies anymore." — Spring 2017
"From the rocky, volcanic soils of Durell, this white is exuberant in salty
rock and sea spray, showing plenty of influence from the Pacific Ocean to its west.
Sturdy in structure and length, the fruit is twisted in pink grapefruit and crisp
apple, its underbelly a richer, warmers expression of toffee and caramel."
