  • Is it a wine with high complexity, nuances and class? No.
    However, is it a wine with loaded deliciousness? Yes.

    Served Blind, called aussie chard with 7-8 years of age.
    I mean, its hard not to get aussie chards right on blind tastings, as they are headed in a very singular and original direction that is definitely different from bourgogne, US, NZ or just about anywhere around the world, while possessing a tremendous quality.

    And this wine is a good example of it.
    Explosive - tropical fruits, oak treatment, and great minerality all are very well presented while staying in balance.
    The rather high alcohol is there, but is easily overshadowed by the explosive fruit/oak/mineral melange for at least a good 1 hour.

    Lack of complexity and class is evident, and this wine loses balance after 1~1.5 hours upon opening, but is nonetheless is a fantastic qpr wine good for quaffing on a weekday night.

  • KR's Farewell (Imperial Treasure, Great World City): A pretty good new world Chardonnay – I enjoyed this. The nose had a bit too much popcorny oak for my tastes, but this was met by pleasantly sunny accents of yellow-fruited pineapples, peaches and nectarines, with a whiff of cooked cream and a little twist of herb at the sides. The palate echoed those ripe stone fruited tones on the attack, but leaned out nicely on the midpalate to show a surprisingly fine mineral character, with shades of earth and chalk bedded down with gently juicy acidity. This was actually very nicely balanced with a touch of elegance to it. There was just a touch of drying woodiness amidst spice and mineral notes at the finish that I did not quite like. Otherwise, this was a good Chardonnay with a decent capacity to age over the next few years as well.
