95 points Vinous: "Fresh honeydew melon, Meyer lemon, pear nectar, oyster shell and toasted brioche on the deeply perfumed, mineral-driven nose. Juicy and expressive on the palate, offering densely packed yet energetic citrus and orchard fruit and sweet butter flavors plus a nervy suggestion of gingery spices. Shows impressive energy and mineral drive on the strikingly long, focused finish, which features a suave floral quality and resonating smokiness. Like all of the Walter Scott Chardonnays, this wine is not at all about fruit, in the best sense. 40% new oak."
Seven Springs delivers the aromatic fireworks: yellow and orange citrus, garden herbs in spring, liquid minerals, all leading to a powerful finish with a light touch.
Our Seven Springs Chardonnay has intense aromatics leaning towards lemon curd, pineapple, slightly ripe strawberry, peach blossoms, and orange peel. The palate reveals acute concentration, with layers of white nectarine, lemon spritz and a sprinkle of salt. Seven Springs is densely textured with a long taught finish.
