WineDiva's Review

Substance, slick, personality.
Quartz & Yarrow wines, produced by Phantom Creek in Oliver, are named for two types of biodynamic preparations. Yarrow is naturally high in sulpher, which stimulates and detoxifies soil. Crushed quartz is used to light energy and photosynthesis.

This Chardonnay dominant white blend from sustainably grown vineyards and it was aged entirely in stainless. The capsule is made from sugar cane the bottle has a slightly lower weight and the label comes from tree free renewable paper.
Creamed honey and unripe quince aromas are layered with yellow apples. salted ginger, griddled peaches and candle wax. It is slick and weighty with impressive concentration and flavours of stone fruits, preserved salted lemons and grapefruit zest and exotic spice notes on the finish. It's a white with substance and personality.
IMO it has a very Viognier-like character.
