This luscious Chardonnay is aged in 100% stainless steel, hence the term 'unoaked'. The primary aromas are dominated by banana and pear, and then evolve into apple and white flower notes. In addition to its classic fruitiness, there is a mineral layer and a little bit of yeastiness that adds complexity. The finish is long, with apple and white peach notes.

Wine SpectatorUltrarich and notably spicy, with powerful Muscat-like scents. Perhaps too potent for some, yet distinctive, joined by touches of fig, apricot and honeydew. Ends long and juicy. Drink now. 1,470 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastFermented and aged entirely in stainless steel, this wine is dominated by tropical fruit, swimming in pineapple and banana aromas and flavors. Unfettered by oak, it boasts sizzling acidity and, while tasty, is somewhat one-dimensional.
