Nugan Estate KV Frascas Lane Vineyard Chardonnay 2013
Brilliant pale straw with a youthful hue. Intense, lifted aromas of ripe peach, nectarine and cantaloupe well-integrated with toasty French oak. A full-bodied style displaying elegant peach, nut and biscuity notes perfectly balanced with crisp acidity.

Light, bright gold. A racy, high-pitched nose displays scents of lemon zest, pear skin, ginger, chalky minerals and anise. Tightly focused and penetrating in a way that reminds me of Chablis, offering zesty orchard and citrus fruit flavors that put on weight with air. Shows very good energy, lift and clarity on the finish, which clings with real tenacity and resonating spiciness.
