Pacificana Chardonnay 2020, California

Chardonnay from USA
Review Date : 04-Apr-2022
Bright, pale yellow with a gold hue and some depth, even colour throughout. The nose is softly full, with aromas of pineapple, mango and melon interweaving warm nuts and toast. Medium-full bodied, tropical aromas of mango, pineapple and melon filled the palate, melded with warm toast, roasted nuts and a hint of cream. The wine is bright with lively acidity and drives a focus with juicy thread. A touch of phenolic texture added to the mouthfeel. This elegant Chardonnay has excellent tropical fruit and acid balance on a fine-textured mouthfeel. Match with lemon chicken and battered fish over the next 3-5 years. 100% barrel-fermented to 13.7% alc, underwent full MLF, aged 6 months in French and American oak, 30% new oak. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) Apr 2022 RRP $30
