Fat Bastard ‘Remarkably Full Bodied’ California Chardonnay 2014

Chardonnay from USA
Review Date : 12-Mar-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour with slight lemon-gold hues. This has a soft and restrained nose with aromas of ripe citrus and tropical fruits with a subtle core of integrated spice and nutty oak notes. The aromas grow in breadth with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate has light flavours of ripe citrus fruits, yellow stonefruits and tropical fruit elements along with subtle nutty oak. The Palate has good body and presence with soft textures and integrated, balancing acidity. The flavours recede as the wine leads to a moderately sustained finish. This is a light-flavoured Chardonnay showing citrus and tropical fruits and nutty oak on a well-weighted palate with good presence. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 3 years. California fruit fermented in stainless-steel to 13.5% alc. and 2.7 g/L RS, the wine aged with American and French oak contact. 16.5+/20 Mar 2017 RRP $19.00
