The Savoy Chardonnay continuously develops with time in glass. The nose asserts itself as aromas come tumbling out of the glass once this straw-yellow Chardonnay is swirled. Upon entry the nose is first met with ripe yellow pear and fresh apricot. Candied lemon rind and a fresh pineapple tropical tone provide a sweeter perception. This sweetness is illusory though as sipped, and candied lemon rind gives way to the meyer lemon lifting acidity. Fruit yields to flowers as the palate and nose find their way to honeysuckle. An understated crème fraiche adds slight roundness to the texture of the wine, while toasted almond and sweet baking spices lend further depth and complexity to this Anderson Valley Chardonnay.
