Smoking Loon California Chardonnay 2014

Chardonnay from USA
Review Date : 12-Oct-2016
Bright, moderately deep golden-yellow colour, lighter edged. The nose is elegantly proportioned and rounded with-concentrated aromas of ripe, savoury yellow stonefruits and citrus fruits, harmoniously entwined with nutty oak, and the beginnings of secondary development. Medium-full bodied, the palate possesses concentrated flavours of savoury citrus and stonefruits at the core along with subtle nutty oak notes. The mouthfeel is soft in texture with light, lacy acidity lending a fresh and steely flow. This has linearity, carrying the firmly packed fruit flavours to a lingering finish. This is an elegant Chardonnay with savoury citrus and stonefruit flavours and balanced oaking, just beginning to develop secondary detail, on a soft-textured but refreshing palate. Match with seafood, poultry and pork over the next 2-3 years. California fruit fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 5 months in 100% new French oak. 16.5+/20 Oct 2016 RRP $25.00
