The reference for Chardonnay wines is Paul Cluver with the super scarce Seven Flags. Cluver knows how to make a good chardonnay. No dusty wine but a wonderful cool-climate Chardonnay supported by subtle wood use. Everything is in balance with this beautiful chardonnay. Nice fruit and nice acids. The nose is characterized by subtle use of wood. Further tones of citrus and some blossoms. In the mouth fresh acids and a somewhat creamy aftertaste. The reviews don't lie with standard 90+ points either.
