The oak has been dialed back a lot in the 2013 vintage to allow lifted aromas of lemon, honey and melon to rise above...

Subtle on the nose with some lemon and green apple. The palate is dry, crisp in acidity and quite racy with a nice...

A leaner less in the face, minor wood influenced Chardonnay. It is by no means light or out of focus. Smells of green...

A tropical chardonnay, woody, vanilla itself, with noticeable residual sugar and a final on the caramel.

The nose is very fruity with canned peaches, candied apple and banana peel. A soft palate with some sweetness here...

This is fairly balanced chardonnay that adds a dash of sweet vanilla oak & spice to the sun kissed fruitiness. It's really smooth and delicious with faint vanilla honey notes on the finish. Given the modest price, I highly recommend.

The 2013 Dreaming Tree Chardonnay has pleasing aromas of Bartlett pear, lees, gooseberry and wood on the nose and green/yellow apple, pear, subtle lees, vanilla and subtle oak on the palate. It is a medium bodied, dry, fruity wine; with good acidity and a medium to long, soapy finish (allow to open for 30+ min). This is a food friendly wine as well as sipping wine; drink now and for the next 3-5 years (composite cork enclosure). My impression: NICE, 88 pts - recommended mainly for its value. Tasted in Apr/15 at 'LTO Chardonnay tasting' http://grapeselections.com/lto-chardonnay-tasting/.
