Beautiful golden hues captivate the eye. This wine is full of aromatics consisting of lemon zest, honeysuckle, pineapple, cardamom, banana, fig, brioche and slight floral and mineral notes. A bright entry leads to a beautifully rich and weighty palate with flavors derived from wild fermentation and Sur Lie barrel aging. This is a wine of beautifully balanced acid, texture and fruit which gives the wine complexity and a finish that is long and lush.

"Cabernet specialist Krupp turns to Chardonnay with excellent results. Some might say it’s too ripe, hot and oaky in the California style. But it is a superior example of its genre. Rich and creamy, it bears flavors of tangerine, tropical fruit, buttered toast and cinnamon spice." —S.H.
INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR - 2009 Krupp Brothers Chardonnay
"Medium yellow. Exotic aromas of ripe peach, toffee, vanilla and coconut. Concentrated and plump, with firm acidity and citrus peel lift giving shape to the stone fruit and nutty oak flavors. Slightly edgy on the persistent finish."—ST
"A rich, creamy, seductive and structured style, with vanilla-scented orange and citrus, ripe pear and apple blossom flavors, gaining depth and ending with a long, detailed finish. Drink now through 2018."—J.L.
