Tasting Notes: Each vintage of Arthur shares certain characteristics, on the nose, palate and finish, and 2013 is no different. I am intrigued by the pronounced stony quality and very interesting mineral nuances this year. Aromatically, there are discreet pear flavors combined with a touch of fresh almonds and mint. The palate is finely balanced with a wonderful round texture and excellent length. Overall I find this Arthur harmonious and very well integrated already, and I wouldn't hesitate to enjoy the wine now.
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
