Everything I hate in a white wine. And more specifically in a Chardonnay... I really wonder if the wine I have drank is the same as the comments below. Anyway, it was purchased in the UK... It was not corked.
On the nose, you get some banana...(true!).. toffee... melon ... The mouth is even worse.. Starting with a strong alcohol kick... midpalate lacks of flavor, its only oak and alcohol.... and it finishes like a shot of vodka.
One of my top 5 worst wines ever drank, but I am happy to see some people like it which means I was not totally ripped off when I bought this bottle, we just all have different tastes.
I think they try too hard to copy French Chardonnay. Color is gold, and nose is oaky and lemon. It has this warm warpped feeling in the mouth. A bit sweet too but not as much as honey taste. However aftertaste is short and the whole image faded quickly. A great opening but disappointing finish.
I am writing this entry a week after tasting and without my notes, but wow this was an impressive wine. In fact, I've had a few Chilean wines this year from different wineries and all have been impressive.
As soon as you pour this wine, you'll notice it's heavy golden hue. As such, it's a bit of a heavy/sweet wine but not overwhelming. I won't write too much detail, but it certainly was smooth, refreshing, and went well with dinner - an asian seafood soup.
