This wine is what I find exciting about Chardonnay coming from the emerging Central Coast region. Good use of Oak, a racy acidity, great layers of fruit - pear, pineapple.
Excellent wine for the price.
Light gold in colour with a medium to medium+ intensity on the nose.
Positives: A simple Chard featuring lemon, lime candy, white pepper, All-Spice, Braeburn apples, golden delicious apple, limestone & a peach finish. Medium body with good acidity & a fairly long length.
Negatives: A touch hot from the 14% alcohol.
Drink now on its own or pair it with chicken Kiev.

This Chardonnay is bright yellow in color and opens up with aromas of peach, pear and pineapple fruit, butter, vanilla, baking spices and caramel. On the mouthfeel, medium-full bodied, tropical fruit flavours, creamy with fresh acidity. The texture is a bit heavy by oak characteristics on the finish with vanilla, spices and caramel notes lingering. Initially nice and creamy but after a while it becomes a bit too sweet with too much oak for me. Not a bad wine (minds you at $20.00 not a great value), I am sure it will appeal too many, but it’s not for me. Tasted August 2012
