Saturday, August 11, 2012 - Description: Gold in colour with a medium intense nose.
Positives: This is not your big commercially produced plain Jane Chardonnay from California. In fact, it’s quite restrained, simple but eloquent showing light toasted oak, butter, spice, lemon, apple & nutmeg, peach. Medium+ body, good acidity and a good length.
Negatives: A little heat which makes me think this may be higher than the stated 13.5% on the bottle.
Drink now on its own or pair it with chicken parmesan.
