An excellent example of what a Napa Chardonnay can and should be. Subtle notes of pear and apricot with a buttery finish when served at just off the chill - cram this into a bucket of ice and you'll destroy the delicate character it can reveal. If you can find a 2005 (very rare nowadays), snatch it up.
Deep straw in colour, clear and polished with a tight rim. Nose was all about tropical fruit and floral notes. On the palate was where it showed best: lemon pie filling with soft hints of apple, oak and butter. Light-bodied, with medium to high acid; I'm going to bet this spent most of its life in steel tanks. Unfortunately, the fruit fades too quickly on the finish, leaving just the acid lingering in the mouth. Paired it with a creamy fettucine alfredo topped with grilled shrimp and fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano. Read more at www.2ndferment.blogspot.com
