The March issue of Tasting Panel magazine looks at the 2015 Chardonnay:
93 points: Grown at an 1,800-foot elevation on Spring Mountain, these grapes are dry-farmed on red Aiken soil (a result of volcanic materials and sedimentary rock) on the estate property surrounding the winery. Barrel fermented for ten months in 80% new French oak, this Chardonnay is a charmer with multiple personalities and an alcohol level of 14.4%. The nose goes from savory to sweet in 60 seconds, alluding to basil, capers and vanilla pudding. The palate follows suit, with herb-y chamomile morphing from pineapple and mustard seed to orange-lemon drops. The finish pursues both crispness and creaminess, ensuring this wine offers options.
