Pale Golden, with a tinge of green, light colour.

It was definitely opened picked up passion fruit mixed with apricot hints of vanilla and lime. Their was a hint of Rubber Cement Petrol'ness to it.
(My mom said she picked up some mineral notes too it)

Dry wine with fruit more on the tropical side and a little bit of "bitterness" from the Oak the Pheonal notes. It was creamy definitely from the Barrel Fermentation.

Went well with vegetarian egg rolls and with Sea Salt Caramel.

Overall Score I rated 14-15. It was a nice white had the oak'iness which I like in Chardonnays.
