Nugan Estate KV Frascas Lane Vineyard Chardonnay 2015
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.
91 pts James Suckling
Fascinating white with sliced pear, apple and honey character. Hints of cream. Full body, yet bright and clean. Lively and complex.
91 pts Vinous – The Pale gold. An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes ripe citrus and pit fruits, tarragon and honey, complemented by a smoky, leesy undertone. Juicy and broad on the palate, offering smoke-tinged tangerine, pear and honeysuckle flavors that pick up a buttery nuance on the back half. Smoothly combines power and vivacity and finishes on a strong pear note, showing very good energy, persistence and a spicy touch of candied ginger. — Josh Raynolds
