Pale straw in color with a slight apple-green tinge. Has an odd nose of lemon and Italian herbs--like whiffing a pasta sauce. It retains some lemon on the palate along with pineapple and grass. Not bad, but not as good as the 2010.
Medium body Aussie style, unoaked chard. Citrus and grass on the nose that follow through on the palate. Fairly straight forward with bright acidity. Not a chard for chard lovers though. You'll perhaps appreciate it more if you pretend it's a sauvignon blanc.
