We aim for a style that is between the mineral and higher acidity wines of Chablis and the rich, complex, more oak influenced Meursaults. I prefer wines that will pair well with food, and balance is crucial for this match. The result, a Chardonnay with piercing acidity that carries the rich fruit with underlying minerality of river gravel. Aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, licorice, stones all wrapped in a cloak of new oak. The 2009 Tin Cross shows a degree more richness both in its lees character(bread toast) and in fruit compared to 2008. As with the previous vintage, give the Tin Cross some time in the bottle and experience the richness in texture and broadening of flavors that develop. The 2009 Tin Cross will live long. Expect at least five years of life in the right cellar conditions. The acidity and richness matches well with the sweetness common in shell fish. Not bad with white pasta sauces as well.
