Essentially bone-dry, kissed by a minor peck of new oak and consistently established, here from fruit out of Estate,...

The 2012 Malivoire Chardonnay, aged in French Oak for 6 months, has sweet, seductive aromas of honey melon, Golden Delicious apples, limestone, and vanilla on the nose and both yellow and green apple, vanilla and oak on the palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine; BALANCED with fresh, yet round acidity and a medium to long finish. As the oak is subtle and not overpowering the fruit, this wine is food friendly and a great sipper; drink now and for the next 3-5 years (screw cap enclosure). My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89-90 pts – recommended for its quality. Tasted in Apr/15 at 'LTO Chardonnay tasting' http://grapeselections.com/lto-chardonnay-tasting/.
