Bright, golden appearance. Ripe nose of pineapple, lemon custard, vanilla, and touches of banana and graham cracker yeast. No one flavor particularly stands out, but the palate is crisp and juicy, with lively middle acidity, a tug of minerals on the medium finish, and a harmless hint of heat on the aftertaste. Definitely a food wine.
Yet another different style to Chardonnay...this on sale @mlcc in Winnipeg. Figured I'd give a try as producer has good rep. This is a solid wine, likely worth the $19. Not quite my style as very rich and fulll bodied, verging off dry for me. Nose is not as descript as others have described, but light grapefruit and pear. Mouthfeel is kind of like apple juice. Light acid, some notes that are on nose come through on palate. A tad bitter nutty'ness is there also on medium finish. Not something I would come back to....saying that the latest ceramic bottle offering is intriguing.
Aroma is grapefruit, with a bit of raspberry and butter. Flavor- dry and pretty bold even though it's un-oaked. More white grapefruit, some pineapple, alcohol. Long finish. Better with food. Roast chicken, ham,collard greens.
