The 2013 Toasted Head Chardonnay (that comes in crooked bottle) contains a touch of Viognier and is aged in American, Eastern European and French Oak barrels for 9 months. It has inviting aromas of luscious vanilla, oak, coconut, butter and yellow apple on the nose as well as the palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry/dry, integrated wine; BALANCED with surprisingly fresh acidity and an extra-long, wood imparted finish. This is a sipper if one is a big, oaky chard lover and will go well with cheeses; drink now to 2025 (composite cork enclosure). My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 89-90 pts – recommended for quality and value, but note that this wine doesn’t have much notable fruit and is quite oak influenced. Tasted in Apr/15 at 'LTO Chardonnay tasting' http://grapeselections.com/lto-chardonnay-tasting/.
