The smokey oak flavours of this California chardonnay go especially well with cedar plank saulmon on a warm summer evening.
Light gold in colour with medium to medium+ intensity.
Positives: Toasted Head has come a long way from the days that California Chards , at least in the inexpensive category of under $30, was like gnawing on oak planks. Toasted Head has been consistently good in the past couple of years producing well balanced, medium toasted oak Chards, full body, long length with good acidity. Notes of lemon, apple, butterscotch, coconut cream pie & pineapple dominate both on the nose and palate.
Negatives: High alcohol.
Interesting Things: I like the shape of the bottle & wax stopper on the cork. Makes it stand out from the rest of the California Chards. LCBO usually puts this wine on sale a couple of times throughout the year.
Drink now on its own or have it with lobster & drawn butter.
Tasted: 9 Dec 11
Score: 9/10, Value: 9/10, Total: 18/20
Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 4
