Tuesday, March 6, 2012 - Wine was tasted blind.
Appearance: bright, clear, medium lemon intensity.
Nose: clean, medium intensity, youthful aromas of stone fruit: peach; citrus fruit, orange, tropical fruit: banana, pineapple. Autolytic aromas of yeast, biscuit; dairy aromas of butter, oak aromas of vanilla.
Palate is: dry with medium acidity, medium alcohol, medium body and medium + flavor intensity. Flavors on the palate are youthful stone fruit of citrus, orange; green fruit of green apples, pear, autolytic aromas of yeast, oak aromas of vanilla. Length is medium +
Overall this is very good wine for its balance between acidity, alcohol and body and concentration of flavor medium + flavor intensity. The finish is medium +. This is youthful wine that is ready to drink but can improve for the next 3-5 years.
Maybe just a bare touch hot on the back end? The more pineapple new oak of the set.
Guess: Chardonnay, maybe hotter climate than Burgundy (or second wine which was a Chablis)
