May 10, 2010 - 2009 St Supery Oak Free Chardonnay
•The Stuff: 100% estate fruit Chardonnay (Napa Valley) fermented in stainless steel with no malolactic fermentation. 13.7%abv
•The Swirl: Golden tone with green hues. There is a mild cloudiness to the wine.
•The Sniff: Bright dynamic citrus notes of lemon and granny smith apples. Seems fizzy on the nose
•The Sip: If I could take a wine and snap it like celery, this would have a sharp crack to it. The fruit play is moderately sour pineapple and grapefruit. The flavors are abundant and the acidity is on the high side. There is a slight effervescence that comes through. The finish is moderate.
•The Score: At $22, I score this wine a solid 3 out of 5. The score is lowered slightly because of the disjointed balance between the fruit, acidity and minerality. It’s a very refreshing wine that I would buy again to pair with spicy food or to take on the boat!4,218 views
