Pop and pour. This was in a great place right from the start. Nose of butterscotch, melon and vanilla/oak. Similar palate with some apple thrown in. Long finish. This was right in my wheelhouse last night.
Didn't love this tonight. Way too much vanilla. So much that it really overpowered everything and nowhere near enough balancing peach flavour, although it was there. I decanted this for 3 hours so perhaps it's better straight out of the bottle. Having bought a case of this I am a bit disappointed although I understand this was a difficult year and not that representative of ridge monte bello Chardonnay
