Vivid and expressive, this Carneros-sourced Chardonnay leaps from the glass with notes of Granny apple, Asian pear and lemon zest. In the mouth the bright acidity brings focus to the rich palate of butterscotch, pineapple and graham cracker crust. There’s a warm oak spiciness to this Chardonnay, and a fresh, tropical fruit character that persists through the long, zesty finish.
The 2012 Luminus has a striking purity of fruit, and showcases bright citrus characteristics and a beautiful minerality. It has a robust acidity, notes of lemon pith, almond extract, and a silky, elegant texture.
Aromas of grilled stone fruits and toasted hazelnuts are complemented by flavors of ripe tropical fruit and notes of lemon and lime. A generous, creamy mouthfeel is rounded out by balanced acidity and a lengthy, elegant finish.
