Bright yellow. Much more smoky and reduced on the nose than the White Stones, hinting at a grassy quality. Conveys an impression of stronger acidity and less sweetness than the White Stones yet this is creamier in the mid-palate in spite of its terrific cut and texture. The mineral and grassy flavors are accented by an element of orange peel on the back end. Perhaps less sexy today than the White Stones but this wine needs time to express itself and is likely to be long-lived by the standards of Argentine Chardonnay. Extended aeration brought a distinctly minty quality throughout. These vines are planted on crumbly calcaire while the White Stones is on calcaire over stone.
