The Crusher California Chardonnay 2016

Chardonnay from USA
Review Date : 17-Jun-2018
Light golden-yellow colour with some depth, a little paler on the rim. The nose is elegant and a little restrained, showing citrus fruit aromas along with tropical fruits and a little nuttiness and suggestions of cream and butter. The aromatics are attractive, and straightforward in expression. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is posed and lively with flavours of ripe citrus fruit along with pineapple and tropical fruit elements. The flavours are accessible and mouthfilling with fresh, lacy acidity enlivening the mouthfeel and some alcohol drive. A little phenolic texture is present and shows with some bitter citrus notes as the wines flows to a sweet finish. This is a brisk and lively, up-front Chardonnay with citrus, pineapple and tropical fruit flavours, some alcoholic drive and some phenolics on the finish. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 2-3 years. California fruit fermented to 13.5% alc. 16.5/20 Jun 2018 RRP $30.00
