Wow, what a nice chardonnay. Enjoyable smokey flavour with a nice buttery finish. Terrific value at $19.95. Will definitely pick up a few more for our cellar. Tasted November 2011 and March 2012.
Over-the-top, banana and pineapple aroma, followed by flavours like a butterscotch Sunday. Have with something big and worthy, like pasta with wild mushroom/cream sauce, or wild mushroom/chicken risotto. Fantastic.
Deep gold in colour with high intensity on the nose.
Positives: A powerful nose showing creme brûlée, buttered popcorn, peaches & cream corn and medium toasted oak. The taste is more refined showing lemon, apple crumble pie, creme brûlée, mango, pineapple, butter popcorn, peaches & cream corn with a medium tossed oak. Full body, good acidity, long finish & the alcohol is well integrated.
Negatives: The powerful nose is a little too much that it detracts from the enjoyment of drinking the wine. Pity.
Interesting Point: Use the large Chard glass.
Drink now on its own or pair it with lobster & drawn butter.
