Producer notes: "A pale straw color is contrasted with a striking and bold bouquet of exotic ripe stone fruit, green papaya, lime zest and jasmine. At first sip, electric notes of luscious golden kiwi burst in your mouth, chased by the acidic tartness of green apple and lime pith. The racy acidity is held in careful balance with round notes of grilled pineapple and summer apricots. This "purist’s chardonnay" is complex on the palate but offers the freshest of finishes, reminiscent of black rock beach stones sprayed by ocean mist."

Not yet reviewed; 2020 vintage rated 92 points by Erin Brooks (Wine Advocate): "The 2020 Chardonnay Clone 76 Inox is scented of white peaches and poached pears with wafts of citrus blossoms, crushed almonds and baker’s yeast. The medium-bodied palate is textural and layered, its peachy fruits taking on more honeyed tones, and it finishes with great length and perfume. Drink: 2022-2027."
