Chimney Rock Elevage Blanc 2012


SKU 052782004110


This wine is bursting with citrus and tropical aromatics: Buddha's hand, white nectarine, and Imperial lemon, complemented by lingering shades of vanilla and peach crème brulee. This wine is a New World, full of plush, mouth-filling flavors that transcend into a bright, clean finish. This wine thrives in the shadowlands that exist between Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. The light will seem brighter, the food will taste better, and the wine will elevate it all.

Wine EnthusiastA creamy concoction of estate-grown 57% Sauvignon Blanc and 43% Sauvignon Gris, this silky wine offers a high-toned sense of effervescence. Pear and lime rise to the fore giving an intriguing edge, teased in balanced acidity.
