The 2012 Flat Rock Unplugged Chardonnay has intense bouquet of green apple, unripe pear, citrus and wet stone minerality. It is an extra-dry, medium bodied, fruity wine with good acidity and a medium finish. Drink with food; drink now and for the next 3-5 years. My impression: NICE, 88 pts. Tasted April/13 at WineAlign Cru tasting.
