"Vanilla, mango and papaya notes are offset by strong green pear and floral aromatics. The mouth is full and broad with a
refreshing hit of lemon custard.”
~ Winemaker Luisa Ponzi
2010 PONZI CHARDONNAY AURORA
"A wine of surpassing vitality and complexity, it mixes notes of melon, jicama and citrus in a fine-tuned flavor explosion. Long and lively, with bracing minerality, it finishes with a fresh lick of sweet herb." Wine Enthusiast 94 points
