Tasting Notes

Tasting Note

A lively freshness is the hallmark of Luminus, which leads with aromas of citrus and delicate white blossoms, giving way to flavors of lemon zest, butterscotch, hazelnut nougat, and nectarines, with white pear and a clove spice coming from the Hungarian oak influence. A rich, creamy mouthfeel resulting from bâttonage, hints of minerality and noticeable depth leave a lasting impression.

Scores & Accolades

    “A fresh, lively white with sliced apples, spiced pears and hints of cream. Honeysuckle. Medium to full body. Flavorful finish. Shows mineral and cream undertones with hints on nutmeg. No malolactic. Vivid. Drink now.” - James Suckling, February 2020

    Jeb Dunnuck

    “The 2018 Chardonnay Luminus is a much smaller production effort and made in a fresher, crisper style. Lots of lemon, orange blossom, spice, and a touch of minerality emerge from the glass, and it's medium-bodied, balanced, and elegant on the palate, with plenty to love. Drink it over the coming 3-4 years." - Jeb Dunnuck, February 2020

    Wine Enthusiast

    “Lush and oak-driven, this has a concentrated, full-bodied foundation of apple, pear and pineapple flavors that give it flesh and weight across a lengthy palate. Secondary notes of vanilla, baking spice and crème caramel add to the richness and breadth of the wine, with underlying acidity that refreshes.” - Virginia Boone
