Description: Gold colour with medium+ nose.

Positives. Unmistakable Chard with medium toast and oak. The nose shows lemon, golden & granny apples with buttery corn. The taste is similar to the nose with creaminess & good acidity. Medium to full body with a medium+ finish.


There is some heat from the alcohol

Little bitterness on the finish.

Interesting Note: Even though this bottle is labeled as having 13.9% alcohol, US tax law gives the wine producer a margin of error for alcohol up to 1.5%. Therefore, this wine may in fact be 15.4%
Tasted 8 Oct 11.

Score: 8.5/10, Value: 9/10, Total: 17.5/20.

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5
