Cloud Break California Barrel Fermented Chardonnay 2017

Chardonnay from USA
Review Date : 07-Jun-2018
Bright straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, a little pale edged. The nose is very fresh with moderately deep aromas of ripe tropical and citrus fruit lifted by subtle notes of oak vanillins and fresh fermentation esters. The aromatics are softly presented. Medium-bodied, the palate has softly aromatic, bright fruit flavours of tropical and citrus fruit with vanilla-like oak and some fresh fermentation esters. This is up-front and uncomplicated. The mouthfeel is rounded and balanced by lacy acidity, and the wine flows easily to a light, aromatic finish. This is a softly fresh, rounded Chardonnay with tropical and citrus fruit with some lifted oak and esters on an easy palate. Serve with most white meat dishes over the next 2+ years. Californian fruit fermented in stainless-steel and barrel-fermented with French and American oak to 13.5% alc. 16.5+/20 Jun 2018 RRP $17.99
