Tasting notes

Old vine Olsen Estate chardonnay, extended barrel aging and full throttle, yet balanced richness are the defining features of the 2015 enlightenment. Lemon oil explodes on the nose, followed by hints of honey and seashore, and a voluptuous, silky texture that delivers minerals, baked apple pie and marzipan, with a touch of toasty vanilla. Prepare to see clearly, for awhile.
