Bought in Hua Hin where it is quite difficult to find decent wines to good prices. This is a blend of Chardonnay and Malika. Some yellow fruit on the nose. Medium to full bodied,dry, delivering round yellow fruit with a dominant resiny, perhaps slightly oxidative note. Some chemical or minerally aspect as well. Felt a bit generic and odd.

The wine is clear and bright with a pale lemon colour.

The nose is clean and developing, showing medium(+) intensity aromas of citrus (lemon peel, lime juice), green fruit (green apple, quince) and stone fruit (fresh apricots).

The wine is dry in the mouth with a medium acidity. It has a medium alcohol and a medium(+) body. It has pronounced intensity flavours of citrus (lemon peel, lime juice), green fruit (green apple, quince), stone fruit (fresh apricots) and hints of tropical fruit (banana). The finish is long.

It is a very good quality wine. It has a lingering finish and very concentrated flavours. It also shows some complexity provided by well-layered fruity aromas, however not enough to be considered outstanding.

Can drink now, but it has enough fruit concentration and some acidic structure to develop some tertiary aromas over the next 2-3 years.
