Lots of yellow & orange fruit followed by flint/smoke taste. The flint/smoke notes may not be liked by some wine drinkers that like either crisp unoaked chard or buttery chard style.  Score: 88/100

Tasting Note: Light bright gold in colour with good acidity, a light to medium intense nose & a long length on the finish. Wine features lemon, peach, nectarine, kumquat, Golden apple, orange zest, flint, smoke, light oak spice & limestone. 

Negatives: None

Interesting Point: On a blind taste, I would have thought this was a Pouilly-Fumé.

Pairings: Drink this now or in the next 3-5 years & pair it with Spicy Crispy Pan Roasted Chicken Thighs.

My Opinion: Recommended
