chalky and full, this is a big time dose of the unexpected. I understand the gunpowder note below, but it doesn't hit my palate in a bad way. Rather, it shows to me as chalky & minerally but in an intriguing way that's in step with the very full body. There's a bit of tangy orange peel around the edges that adds character as well.
A December Sunday family dinner (Hemmavid): Non-blind. Had immediately (@home, family dinner) Impression: Good, and nearing Very Good. Too much oak for a too thin wine. Oak and wine will never marry, simply because the fruit will be dead before they reach the altar. I used to love these over-oaked Chards, but nowadays instead get my juices going from the subtleties in better dry whites. Poor QPR since this is somewhat aggressively (over-)priced.
