LAVINEA, 2015 LAVINEA Chardonnay Lazy River

"Pale yellow. Mineral-tinged nectarine, orange, honey and white flowers on the intensely perfumed nose. Smooth, fleshy and dry in the mouth, offering juicy orchard and pit fruit flavors complemented by suggestions of fennel, sweet butter and candied lemon peel. Shows excellent depth as well as energy and finishes minerally, dry and very long, featuring citrus and pit fruit notes."
