A fantastic Chard... But not for everyone. big, buttery and seemingly aged in new oak and malolactic fermentation it was creamy, rich and tropical with just enough acidity to keep it lively on the palate. Not a Chard for the un-oaked Chard lovers
This wine has held up. But we didn't give it much time. Oops. As a matter of fact, "limestone creme brulee" kind of takes the cake when it comes to the winning descriptor for this bottle. The aftertaste is actually quite appealing - kind of like a minty butterscotch. Very nice wine, and I wish I had another case of it because it is affordable, intriguing, and complex, and has another 2-3 years.
Great Chard... Full Malo so it was rich and plush on the palate but not overly oaky at all. there are wonderful stone fruit aromas and wonderfully crisp on the palate, not Chablis crisp but Sonoma crisp and balanced and not flabby at all.
