This wine is named after the five large stone pine trees on a hill standing sentinel over the Five Soldiers vineyards. It is designed to be drunk with food and will benefit from a few years of careful cellaring. It illustrates the true character of each vintage and is a barrel selection of the finest batches of Chardonnay each year. Characters of ripe citrus, melon and peach with great minerality, rounded out by well-judged oaking. A very complex wine with a long and creamy finish and a good acid backbone. Aging Potential 10+ years from vintage under ideal cellaring conditions.
